How Often to Get 2019 Kia Soul EV Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Soul EV’s oil changed? Look no further than 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, 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 changing your 2019 Soul EV’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Soul EV in the above table. Your Soul EV may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Soul EV. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2019 Kia Soul EV Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Soul EV 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 too much heat, and cause your Kia Soul EV 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
