When to Change 2019 Kia Sorento Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2019 Kia Sorento? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Kia recommends having your 2019 Kia Sorento’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Sorento in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Sorento may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Kia if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Sorento. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Kia Sorento Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2019 Kia Sorento motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2019 Kia Sorento vehicles.

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Sorento by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2019 Kia Sorento Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Sorento engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Sorento’s 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 oil on my own? 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 Sorento spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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 damaged cylinder walls.
