2011 Kia Rio5 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Rio5? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Kia Rio5 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Kia Rio5 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Rio5 exhaust smoke grayish 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
