Kia recommends having your 2015 Kia Soul EV’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

2015 Kia Soul EV Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Kia Soul EV motor oil level? 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 excess heat, and cause your Soul EV’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 Soul EV oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 Soul EV exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
