How Often to Get 2015 Kia Forte5 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Forte5’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.

Your 2015 Forte5’s oil should be changed according to Kia’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Forte5 may need an oil change if your check engine 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Kia Forte5. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Kia Forte5 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2015 Kia Forte5 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Kia has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2015 Forte5. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Forte5's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Forte5 by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2015 Kia Forte5 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Forte5? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Forte5’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Kia exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
