Kia recommends changing your 2017 Forte5’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Forte5 in the above table. 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Forte5. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Kia Forte5

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Forte5 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Forte5’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Forte5 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
