Maintenance Tips

Checking the engine oil level:
  • Make sure that the vehicle is on the ground level.
  • Start the engine and allow it to reach the operating temperature.
  • Turn the engine off and wait for the oil to return to the pan. 
  • Pull the dipstick, wipe it clean, and re-insert it. 
  • Check the level. The level should be between F and L.
  • If it is near L, add oil to bring it to the level F.
  • Do not overfill and use the Hyundai engine oil. 
Checking the brake fluid level:
  • Make sure that the vehicle is on the ground level.
  • The fluid level should be between the MAX and the MIN of the reservoir.
  • Clean the area around the cap before you remove the reservoir cap and add the brake fluid to prevent the contamination.
  • If the level is low, add the fluid to reach the MAX level. 
  • The level will then fall within the accumulated mileage associated with the brake linings wear.
  • If the fluid is too low, get it checked by a dealer. 
  • Checking the engine coolant level:
    • Don’t remove the radiator cap while the engine is hot or operating.
    • The coolant level shall be filled between the F and the L level on the reservoir.
    • If the coolant is low, add enough coolant to provide adequate protection against corrosion and freezing. Bring the level to F but without overfilling it.
    • If you require a frequent coolant refill, see a dealer for an inspection.
    Checking the power steering fluid level:
    • Make sure that the vehicle is on the ground level.
    • The fluid level should be between the MAX and the MIN of the reservoir.
    • If the level is low, add more fluid till you reach the MAX level.
    • se specified power steering fluid while filling.
    • In case if your power steering system is requiring a frequent fluid refill, get the vehicle inspected by an authorized dealer. 
    Checking the washer fluid level:
    • The reservoir is translucent, and it will let you check the level through a visual inspection.
    • Check the fluid level and if needed, add more.
    • Plain water can be used in case if washing fluid is not available.
    • Use a washer solvent with antifreeze technology in a cold climate to prevent freezing.
    • Do not use a radiator coolant or an antifreeze in the reservoir. 
    Battery Care:
    • Keep the battery mounted for the best service.
    • Keep the battery clean and dry.
    • Keep the terminals and the connections clean, dry, and coated with terminal grease or petroleum jelly. 
    • Rinse any leaked electrolyte from the battery with a baking soda or a solution of water.
    • If the vehicle is not being used for an extended duration, you can disconnect the battery cables.
    Tire Rotation:
    • To equalize the tread, it is recommended to rotate the tires every 10,000 Km or when you notice irregular wear. 
    • Check the tires for the correct balance.
    • When the tires are rotated, check for damage or uneven wear.
    • Abnormal wear is usually associated with improper alignment, incorrect pressure, out of balance wheels, cornering or braking. 
    • Look for bulges or bumps on the sides or on the tread.
    • Replace the tire if the tire is damaged or if the cord/fabric is visible.
    • After the rotation, bring the tire pressures to a specification.
    • Check the tightness of the lug nuts. 
    Inner panel fuse replacement:
    • Turn the ignition switch and other switches, off
    • Open the fuse panel cover and pull the fuse out.
    • Use the removal tool available in the fuse panel of the engine compartment.
    • Check the fuse and replace it if it’s blown
    • Push the new fuse and make sure if it is tightly fit. If it is loose, consult an authorized dealer.
    • If the headlights or other components do not work, but the fuses are, check the fuse block to replace it.
    • If the replacement fuse also blows, it indicates an electrical problem, which is why you consult an authorized dealer. 
    Engine compartment panel fuse replacement:
    • Turn the ignition switch and other switches, off
    • Open the fuse panel cover and pull the fuse out.   Use the removal tool available in the fuse panel of the engine compartment.
    • Check the fuse and replace it if it’s blown
    • Push the new fuse and make sure if it is tightly fit. If it is loose, consult an authorized dealer.
    • After checking the fuse box, install the cover. If not, there is a possibility for electricity failures that result in water leakage.
    • If any of the lights, accessories, or controls doesn’t work, check the circuit fuse, either the one in the panel bolster or the one in the engine compartment. 
    • If the electrical system does not work, check the driver’s fuse panel. Replace a blown fuse that has the same rating. 
    Exterior Care:
    • Wash the car at least once in a month
    • While washing, pay extra attention to dirt removal, salt removal, or removal of foreign particles.
    • Use a car washing shampoo for washing the vehicle.
    • Do not use hot water, strong soap, or chemical detergents for washing.
    • Don’t wash the engine compartment with a water jet as it will cause the failure of electrical components.
    Interior Care:
    • Prevent cosmetic oil or perfume from contacting the dashboard. If there is contact, wipe it off immediately.
    • Remove the loose dirt/dust from the upholstery at regular intervals with a vacuum cleaner.
    • If the interior glass is fogged due to the deposition of oil, wax, or grease, clean it using a glass cleaner.
    • If the carpet is wet, take it and dry it. Leaving it for long might corrode the floor and also create a musty smell.
    Jacking instructions:
    • The jack is only provided for emergency tire changing.
    • To prevent the rattling of the jack during the motion, you should store it.
    • Follow the instructions to reduce the possibility of personal injury. 
    Removing and storing the spare tire:
    • If your spare tire is needed, find it below the cargo area of your vehicle. .
    Jack and tools:
    • Pull the luggage box cover to reach the equipment. 
    To store the spare tire:
    • Lay the spare tire on the ground with the valve facing up.
    • Place the wheel under and install the retainer through the center.
    • Turn the brace clockwise until you hear a click. 
    Changing Tires:
    • Park the vehicle on a level surface and apply the brake.
    • Shift the lever to the Reverse gear.
    • Activate the flasher that warns hazards.
    • Remove the jack, the wheel brace, and the jack handle. Spare the tire from the vehicle. 
    • Block both the front and the rear part of the wheel, which are diagonally opposite to the jack.
    • Loosen the wheel nuts by turning them counterclockwise, one at a time.
    • Do not remove the nuts until the tire is raised off the ground.
    • Place the jack at a jacking position, which is close to the tire that you’re changing.
    • Place the jack at a designated location where the plates are welded to the frame with a raised dot and two tabs, in index with the jack.
    • Insert the handle into the jack snd start turning it clockwise to raise the vehicle until the tire is completely off the ground.
    • The measure of the clear space should be around 1.2 inches (30mm).
    • Before removing the nuts, assure that the vehicle is stable with no chance of slippage.
    • Loosen the nuts and remove them with the fingers. Slide the wheel away from the studs and lay the tire flat so that it won’t run away.
    • Place the wheel on the hub, take the spare tire, and line the holes up with the studs. Slide the wheel into them. If you find this difficult, tip the wheel and get the top hole right with the top stud. 
    • Jiggle the front and back of the wheel until the wheel is slid onto the rest of the studs.
    • While reinstalling the wheel, hold the studs and put the nuts on the studs to tighten them.
    • The nuts should only be installed and tapered with small ends that are directed inwards.
    • Jiggle the tire to make sure that it is seated and then tighten all the nuts.
    • Once the procedure is done, lower the vehicle to the ground by turning the brace counterclockwise.
