We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Kia recommends having your 2020 Kia Sedona’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Sedona may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Kia Sedona. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2020 Kia Sedona

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Sedona engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Kia Sedona engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Kia Sedona oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Kia exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
