How Often to Change 2015 Kia Sportage Oil

Need more info about 2015 Kia Sportage oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 2015 Kia Sportage’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 Sportage may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Sportage. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2015 Kia Sportage?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2015 Kia Sportage motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2015 Sportage. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Sportage’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car 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 Sportage by considering your driving style, and mileage.

2015 Kia Sportage Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Kia Sportage motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Kia Sportage engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia Sportage oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Sportage spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
