How Often to Change 2019 Kia Forte Oil

Need more info about 2019 Kia Forte oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 having your 2019 Kia Forte’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Forte may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

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

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2019 Kia Forte motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2019 Forte.

During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Forte’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Forte by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2019 Kia Forte Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Forte? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Kia Forte engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Kia Forte oil at home? 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 Forte exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
