How Often to Change 2004 Kia Sedona Oil

Need more info about 2004 Kia Sedona oil changes? Get the advice you need at 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.”

Your 2004 Sedona’s oil should be changed according to Kia’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Sedona may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Sedona. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2004 Kia Sedona Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Sedona? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Sedona’s 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Sedona exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
