When to Change 2004 Kia Amanti Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2004 Kia Amanti? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Kia recommends changing your 2004 Amanti’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Amanti may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Kia recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Kia Amanti. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2004 Kia Amanti

  • Should I check my Kia Amanti motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Kia Amanti engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Kia exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
