Kia recommends having your 2018 Kia Stinger’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Stinger in the above table. Outside of Kia-recommended oil change intervals, your Stinger may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Kia Stinger. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2018 Kia Stinger Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Stinger? 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, overheat, and eventually lead to Kia Stinger engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Kia Stinger 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Stinger exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
