Your 2017 K900’s oil should be changed according to Kia’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your K900 in the above table. Your K900 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Kia K900. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2017 Kia K900 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Kia K900 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Kia K900 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Kia K900 oil at home? 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Kia K900 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
