How Often to Change 2007 Kia Optima Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Optima’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 having your 2007 Kia Optima’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Optima may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Kia if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Optima. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2007 Kia Optima Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Optima? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Kia Optima engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia Optima oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
