Oil Changes for 2021 Kia Soul

How Often to Get 2021 Kia Soul Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2021 Kia Soul? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 2021 Soul’s oil should be changed according to Kia’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. 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, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Kia Soul?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2021 Kia Soul motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2021 Kia Soul vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Soul’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Soul by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2021 Kia Soul

  • Should I check my Kia Soul motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
