Your 2017 Sportage’s oil should be changed according to Kia’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Sportage in the above table. 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.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Sportage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Kia Sportage

  • Should I check my Kia Sportage motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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? 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 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
