When to Change 2017 Kia Sorento Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Kia Sorento? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.

Your 2017 Sorento’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 Sorento may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, 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 2017 Kia Sorento?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 Kia Sorento motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Kia has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2017 Kia Sorento vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Sorento's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s 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 style, and mileage.

2017 Kia Sorento Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Sorento? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, 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 Sorento oil at home? 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 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
