How Often to Change 2015 Kia Soul Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Soul’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 having your 2015 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 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, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Soul. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Kia Soul?

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 most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2015 Soul. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Soul’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2015 Kia Soul Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Soul? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Kia Soul oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
