How Often to Get 2010 Kia Soul Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Kia Soul? Get the advice you need at 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, "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 2010 Soul’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Soul may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Soul. 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 Soul Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Kia Soul. Kia has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2010 Kia Soul vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Soul’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Soul by considering your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Kia Soul

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Soul? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Soul’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? 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. 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 Soul exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
