How Often to Change 2017 Kia Rio Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Rio’s oil changed? Turn to 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.”

Your 2017 Rio’s oil should be changed according to Kia’s recommended oil change 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Kia if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Kia Rio?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Kia Rio motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2017 Rio.

In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Rio’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect 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 habits, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Kia Rio

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Rio engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Kia Rio 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? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 Rio 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
