How Often to Get 2008 Kia Rondo Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Rondo’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, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Kia recommends having your 2008 Kia Rondo’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Rondo in the above table. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Rondo may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Kia recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Rondo. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Kia Rondo Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2008 Kia Rondo motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Kia has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2008 Kia Rondo vehicles.

In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Rondo’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Rondo by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

2008 Kia Rondo Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Kia Rondo motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Rondo’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Kia Rondo oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Rondo 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.
