When to Change 2019 Kia Soul Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2019 Kia Soul? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Kia recommends changing your 2019 Soul’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Soul may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

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

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2019 Kia Soul motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2019 Soul. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Soul’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Soul by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2019 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 runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Kia Soul engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia oil on my own? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Soul 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
