Need more info about 2020 Kia Cadenza oil changes? Turn to 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 changing your 2020 Cadenza’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Cadenza may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

2020 Kia Cadenza Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Cadenza? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Cadenza’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia Cadenza oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Cadenza spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
