How Often to Change 2014 Kia Sorento Oil

Need more info about 2014 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 the ins and outs of 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.

Kia recommends having your 2014 Kia Sorento’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Sorento may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Sorento. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2014 Kia Sorento?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Kia Sorento. Kia has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2014 Sorento. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Sorento’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Sorento by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

2014 Kia Sorento Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Kia Sorento motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Kia Sorento engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Kia Sorento oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 Sorento exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
