Kia recommends changing your 2015 Forte Koup’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Forte Koup in the above table.

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.

2015 Kia Forte Koup Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Forte Koup engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Kia Forte Koup engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Kia exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
