When to Change 2014 Kia Sportage Engine Oil

Need more info about 2014 Kia Sportage oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 2014 Sportage’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Sportage may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Sportage. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2014 Kia Sportage Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Sportage? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Kia Sportage engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Kia Sportage oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 Sportage exhaust smoke grayish 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
