Kia recommends having your 2014 Kia Soul’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Soul 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Kia recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Soul. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2014 Kia Soul Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Soul engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Kia Soul engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Kia Soul oil at home? 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
