How Often to Change 2017 Kia Cadenza Oil

Need more info about 2017 Kia Cadenza oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Kia recommends having your 2017 Kia Cadenza’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Cadenza may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Kia if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Kia Cadenza. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2017 Kia Cadenza?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Kia Cadenza. Kia has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2017 Kia Cadenza vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Cadenza's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2017 Kia Cadenza Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Cadenza? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Kia Cadenza engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Cadenza spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
