How Often to Change 2019 Kia Sportage Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2019 Kia Sportage? Turn to 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 2019 Kia Sportage’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Sportage in the above table. 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 vehicle, 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Kia Sportage?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Kia Sportage. Kia has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2019 Kia Sportage vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your 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, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Sportage by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

There are plenty of motor oils on the market today, so why do we prefer these brands? They are tested and trusted.

2019 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 reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
