2021 Kia Cadenza Oil Change Service

When to Change 2021 Kia Cadenza Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Cadenza’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 2021 Cadenza’s oil 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 knocking sounds 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Cadenza. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Kia Cadenza?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2021 Kia Cadenza motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2021 Cadenza.

During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Cadenza’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Cadenza by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2021 Kia Cadenza Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Cadenza? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
