When to Change 2016 Kia Cadenza Engine Oil

Need more info about 2016 Kia Cadenza oil changes? Turn to 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.”

Kia recommends having your 2016 Kia Cadenza’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Cadenza may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Kia recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Cadenza. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Kia Cadenza

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Cadenza engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Cadenza’s engine to fail. 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
