How Often to Change 2014 Kia Forte Koup Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Forte Koup’s oil changed? 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, "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 2014 Kia Forte Koup’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Forte Koup may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Kia recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Forte Koup. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2014 Kia Forte Koup?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Kia Forte Koup. Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2014 Forte Koup. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Forte Koup’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Forte Koup by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Kia Forte Koup

  • Should I check my Kia Forte Koup motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Kia Forte Koup 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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle 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 old cylinder walls.
