Not sure how or where to get your Kia Forte’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”
Kia recommends changing your 2021 Forte’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Kia if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Forte. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Kia Forte. Kia has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2021 Forte. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Forte’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car 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 preferences, weather and road conditions,
