13 Hyundai Elantra - M1 EP 0w20 - 7365 miles - Wow #4542410

Background: this Elantra was originally owned by another friend of mine. I have maintained this Elantra since the 25K mark. Until this oil change, it was receiving oil changes with Quaker State Ultimate Durability 5W20 or Pennzoil Platinum 5W20 at 7.5K-10K intervals and genuine Hyundai oil filters.

Earlier this year, the Elantra changed ownership to a good friend of mine (the original owner moved out of state and no longer needed the car) and it looks like I will continue to maintain this car for the forseeable future.

***

This oil was in service for about 3 months. The engine air filter was a Mahle/Clevite with 20K miles on it, and the oil filter used was a Genuine Hyundai.

When this oil was placed into service at 78,994 miles, the ECM was also flash-reprogrammed to the latest calibration from Hyundai in order to resolve a P2096 fault code. See this thread: https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4425564/2013_Hyundai_Elantra_-_P2096_-

The results are almost too good to be true – TBN of 6.7 (new is 9.0), Flashpoint of 435F and Insolubles of 0.1 after 7,400 miles is almost unreal.

How long can this oil go for?

That non-GDi 1.8L is an extremely reliable engine.

Easily 10k and likely 12-15k miles (~24000 km); just keep an eye on TAN.

Hyundai, now being related with "extremely reliable" is very strange to me. I guess they got their s**t figured out!

This one has a somewhat nasty timing chain rattle at startup, but I was advised that this is normal due to the odd design of the timing chain tensioner.

Yes, that's a common complaint on the forums. It is far from refined at startup but settles in nicely once you pull off.

i am not a fan of DI, + my car + truck are port injected!! prolly NEVER buy a DI engine unless it has port as well!! the little xtra performance + mpg's matters not to me but i understand why manufactures do whatever they can to meet MPG + EPA requirements!!

Now where are the guys who insist 0W-20 turns engines into "iron soup"?
