How Often to Change 2019 Kia Niro Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Niro’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. 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 changing your 2019 Niro’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Niro may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Kia Niro. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2019 Kia Niro?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2019 Kia Niro motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2019 Kia Niro vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Niro’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2019 Kia Niro Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Niro? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Kia Niro 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 Niro oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Niro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
