How Often to Get 2009 Kia Sorento Oil Changes

Need more info about 2009 Kia Sorento 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, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2009 Sorento’s oil should be changed according to Kia’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Sorento may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Sorento. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Sorento’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle.

2009 Kia Sorento Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Kia Sorento motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Kia Sorento 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Sorento spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
