How Often to Change 2007 Kia Spectra5 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Spectra5’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. 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 having your 2007 Kia Spectra5’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Spectra5 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of 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. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Kia Spectra5. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Spectra5 by considering your driving habits, climate,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2007 Kia Spectra5

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Spectra5? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Kia Spectra5 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Kia Spectra5 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
