When to Change 2007 Kia Spectra Engine Oil

Need more info about 2007 Kia Spectra oil changes? 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, 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 2007 Kia Spectra’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Spectra 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 vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Kia if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Spectra. 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 Spectra?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2007 Kia Spectra motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2007 Spectra. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Spectra's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other 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 Spectra by considering your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2007 Kia Spectra

  • Should I check my Kia Spectra motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Kia Spectra 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 Spectra oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Spectra spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
