What oil do I use on a 08 buick lucerne cxl


OIL TYPE

1.GM6094M Your vehicle's engine requires oil meeting GM Standard GM6094M.

2.SAE 5W-30 is best for your vehicle. These numbers on an oil container show its viscosity, or thickness. Do not use other viscosity oils such as SAE 20W-50. Oils meeting these requirements should also have the starburst symbol on the container. This symbol indicates that the oil has been certified by the American Petroleum Institute (API). You should look for this information on the oil container, and use only those oils that are identified as meeting GM Standard GM6094M and have the starburst symbol on the front of the oil container.

NOTICE: Use only engine oil identified as meeting GM Standard GM6094M and showing the American Petroleum Institute Certified For Gasoline Engines starburst symbol. Failure to use the recommended oil can result in engine damage not covered by your warranty.

GM Goodwrench oil meets all the requirements for your vehicle.

If you are in an area of extreme cold, where the temperature falls below -20°F (-29°C), it is recommended that you use either an SAE 5W-30 synthetic oil or an SAE 0W-30 oil. Both will provide easier cold starting and better protection for your engine at extremely low temperatures.

ENGINE OIL ADDITIVES
Do not add anything to your oil. The recommended oils with the starburst symbol that meet GM Standard GM6094M are all you will need for good performance and engine protection.

Timing belt in a 2005 hyundai replacement


You should find another dealer. Hyundai recommends replacing the belt every 60,000 miles and this dealer knows this. No reason at all to replace it at 42,093 miles. Remember that this is an interference engine so if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. Do not neglect this service at 60,000 miles.

HOW TO CHANGE OIL ON A 2002 HYUNDAI SANTA FE. IM 19 YRS OLD AND WOULD LIKE TO HELP MY GIRLFRIEND AND CHANGE IT FOR HER. A DETAILED DRAWING POINTING OUT THE OIL CAP AND THE DRAINAGE AND FILTER FROM...


Lift your Hyundai Santa Fe using a jack and then place the car on jack stands. If you don't have jack stands, drive the car onto a set of wheel ramps.
Pop the hood and remove the dipstick and oil filler cap. The dipstick is near the front engine compartment with the oil filler nearby.
Gather an oil drip pan, a 17-mm wrench, oil filter wrench, cleaning cloths and a new oil filter. Slide under your Santa Fe.

Change the Oil
  • Locate the oil filter and oil drain plug underneath the car. The drain plug is on the bottom of the oil pan, and the filter is to the side of the oil pan.
  • Remove the oil drain plug using the 17mm wrench. Pull the plug out quickly and let the oil drain for 10 to 15 minutes. Check the gaskets and threads for damage. Replace these components, if necessary.
  • Take off the oil filter using an oil filter wrench. Dump the old oil into the oil drip pan and put on the new oil filter. Tighten the oil filter by hand, and then replace the oil drain plug using the wrench. Clean off the excess oil.
  • Go under the hood and add oil. Turn on the engine and check the oil pressure gauge to make sure it rises. Let your Santa Fe run for a minute.
  • Lower your Hyundai Santa Fe and turn off the engine. Take an oil reading on the dipstick. If the oil level isn't at full, add a bit more oil.
Thanks

Oil type


Read your owner's manual. If not.
Proper engine oil selection is very important for optimum engine performance, efficiency and durability. A new service API classification category has been adopted. The designation for this category is "SH". The "SH" category is intended to replace the "SG"category and provide improved performance in: deposit control, oil oxidation, wear, rust, and corrosion protection. "SH" category oils may be used in applications where "SG" and earlier categories are recommended. The appropriate SAE viscosity grade depends on existing climatic conditions. Refer to the temperature chart below when selecting viscosity grades for expected temperature ranges. Brief variations in temperature are no cause for alarm. Lubricants that do not list both an SAE grade number and an API service classification on the container should not be used. 7897780.jpg
