How Often to Get 2015 Kia Forte Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 Kia Forte? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2015 Forte’s oil should be changed according to Kia’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Forte may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2015 Kia Forte Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Forte engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Kia Forte engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia Forte oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Forte spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
