When to Change 2015 Kia Rio Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 Kia Rio? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 having your 2015 Kia Rio’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Rio may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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 areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2015 Rio. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine.

2015 Kia Rio Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Kia Rio motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Kia Rio 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 Rio oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Rio spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
