When to Change 2021 Kia Niro Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Niro’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Kia recommends having your 2021 Kia Niro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Niro in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Niro may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Kia recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Kia Niro?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2021 Kia Niro motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2021 Kia Niro vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Niro’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2021 Kia Niro Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Kia Niro motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Kia Niro 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Niro exhaust smoke grayish 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
