When to Change 2008 Kia Amanti Engine Oil

Need more info about 2008 Kia Amanti oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2008 Amanti’s oil should be changed according to Kia’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Amanti may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Kia if you regularly 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. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Kia Amanti Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2008 Kia Amanti motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2008 Kia Amanti vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Amanti’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Amanti by taking into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

2008 Kia Amanti Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Amanti? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
