My Veloster N has been sitting for a little while due to having a new baby, work, etc. On all my prior cars after an oil change I could prime the before starting the engine by flooring the accelerator before turning the ignition. The starter would turn over the engine and build up pressure. Then, I could turn off the key push in the clutch pedal and then start the car normally.

Anyone know if something similar is possible with the Veloster N?

You dont need to do any of that. The oil wont be molasse, just start the car normally.
Thanks for the response. I’m not worried about the correct viscosity oil being in the crankcase. Rather, I’m just wondering if the oil can be primed.

5W30 anything won't cause any issues. It's rated for - 40 below. No it can't be primed as you have a mechanical oil pump. The engine has to be turned over to operate the oil pump.

Thanks also for the reply. Prior cars were all mechanical oil pumps as well. Turning the engine over with the starter but without any spark or fuel was possible with the accelerator on the floor. In any case, perhaps it’s not possible with the push button start.
