How Often to Change 2010 Kia Forte Koup Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Kia Forte Koup? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 changing your 2010 Forte Koup’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Forte Koup may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Kia Forte Koup. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Kia Forte Koup

  • Should I check my Kia Forte Koup motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Forte Koup’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia Forte Koup oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Forte Koup exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
