Need more info about 2002 Kia Rio oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 changing your 2002 Rio’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Rio may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Rio. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2002 Kia Rio motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2002 Rio. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Rio’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Rio by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

 ILSAC GF-5 represents the latest performance standard set by the International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC), a joint effort of U.S. and Japanese automobile manufacturers. Most automobile manufacturers are expected to recommend oils that meet ILSAC GF-5. API SN is the most recent service category issued by API’s Lubricants Group.
