How Often to Get 2022 Kia Sorento Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Sorento’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.

Kia recommends changing your 2022 Sorento’s oil at regular 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2022 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 ideal engine oil for your 2022 Sorento. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Sorento’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Sorento by considering your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

2022 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 reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Kia Sorento engine failure. 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? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Sorento spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Kia Sorento? You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care for your Kia Sorento oil change, oil filter replacement, oil leak diagnostics, and more! Our expert technicians will even advise the right oil for your vehicle.
  • Why is the oil light on in my Kia Sorento? The oil change light in your Kia Sorento could be triggered by an overdue oil change. However, if the oil pressure light is on, you may be dealing with low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a clogged oil filter, or a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor.
  • Do I need to replace my Sorento’s oil filter when changing my oil? It's recommended that you replace your Kia Sorento oil filter with every oil change. Otherwise, you send fresh, clean motor oil through a dirty filter. That's like putting on muddy socks after a shower.
