Kia recommends having your 2021 Kia Seltos’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Seltos in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Seltos may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Seltos. 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 2021 Kia Seltos

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Seltos? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Kia Seltos engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia oil on my own? 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 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
