I'm a fan of DIY oil and filter changes. YouTube has several videos of people doing oil and filter changes on their Hyundai products. Several of these videos showed small trap door cutouts for the oil filter and oil pan bolt in the shrouding underneath the plastic . Has anyone noticed if the Palisade has these cutouts? I was under the Palisade but I didn't notice them. I saw the videos after my under-car exploration.

Did you ever find out or check? @Clemson
No reply from anyone on the Forum and I haven't had time to crawl underneath and do a careful check. I'm assuming you're looking for an answer also? Watching the YouTube videos made it look like a piece of cake with not having to remove any panels with their 8-10 screws and clips. I also asked in a Telluride Forum but no reply.

Yep determining if I will do the changes myself or just pay which I read are every 7500 miles? Seems like a lot. But not complaining if so

I agree. The money savings is minimal but I get a certain amount of pleasure from doing this myself since that and changing tires (hopefully seldom) is about all I can do on a modern new car!
Yes, for "normal" service Hyundai recommends 7,500 miles. However, I do plan on having it changed the first time at about 1,000 miles.

I changed mine this morning. It was easy. I will be getting a fumoto drain valve for the future however to make it faster and cleaner. Currently only the "base" oil filters are out and are good for 5,000 miles. Once they start making the synthetic oil filters for this more mainstream I will be switching for sure. Also, I was a Mobil One fan for years. However I am now a Super Tech oil fan which is also the same as Amazon basics synthetic oil. Made by Warren distribution. You tube some video comparisons and you will be quite happy with the results. 5 quart jug is less than $15 at walmart.

Takes 7 quarts by the way and will be changing out every 5000 like my Toyota Tacoma and all my others.

When you get the Fumoto drain valve please post the part number. I've had several Honda Odyssey's in the past and the valve works great. I found the Amazon Basics oil but the specs. say "dexos1 Gen 2, API SN Plus, and ILSAC GF-5 approved ". The Palisade spec. requires ACEA A5/B5, so I'm not sure if they are equivalent.

I am waiting to hear from the company on which part number. I will update when I find out. Regarding specs I am not really concerned. For example Chrysler spec is not met by Mobil One synthetic but I used it in my Hemi and it performed great. Alot of times it is just the company has not submitted it for testing. I will also keep you updated on thoughts on this oil going forward.

Also, check your oil levels as my Palisade with 4600 miles on its first oil change only 5 quarts or so was removed!

I already bought the fumoto valve and went with the part number that all the other hyundai models used. I spot checked 5 or 6 models and they were all the same, so hopefully I guessed correctly. Will know in a couple months when i do my first change.

My only concern, and I realize it's very low risk, is the fact that if there is a motor related warranty issue and for whatever reason, Hyundai wants to lab test the oil, I wouldn't want them to deny a claim based on not using specified oil. Again, I know it's a low risk probability.
I did my own first oil change at 1,000 miles and it took very little time. It took 6.5 qts on refill which includes the oil filter.
Thanks for the part number when you do confirm it.

Understand your concern and it is very reasonable to think that way. My background is automotive industry since I was 18 years old. Manufacturers usually do not put the customer through the ringer like that however if you have an extended warranty then most likely yes they will.

I contacted Fumoto again for help but I think the F106N for nipple....will be the one I get. Then you can hook up a 3/8 pvc pipe to it for easy drain but since the ground clearance is less than my truck it may not be needed.

I just got off the phone with Fumoto...they confirmed the part is F106....then of course there are variations like with or without a nipple etc....

I personally like the nipple since I can slip the tubing on it and guide or let it flow into my oil container for zero mess.

I wish Fram made this filter in the Ultra Synthetic line. I change it every 5k miles but the filter media used is head and shoulders above this "base model" filter available. Also when I bought it from the parts store it was $10....the Ultra Synthetic line I buy for my other vehicles is that cost and a much higher quality filter.

I use OEM filters and if a problem arises with a warranty problem oil related you wont have fight city hall and i have seen them Amazon for a low as $ 7.50 but i am sure will eventually make the ultra Syn line do to increased demand Hyundai & KIA for the same filter.

K & N has the HP-7035 and PS-7035 oil filters available. The kits come with crush ring and O Ring is $15. Did the Fumoto F106N fit? Wondering if the F106SX might be a better option? From the pics it looks like a tight fit to be able to attach a hose to the nipple.
