How Often to Change 2019 Kia Stinger Oil

Need more info about 2019 Kia Stinger oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Kia recommends having your 2019 Kia Stinger’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Kia if you regularly 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 Stinger. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2019 Kia Stinger?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2019 Kia Stinger motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2019 Stinger. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Stinger'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 rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Stinger by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

2019 Kia Stinger Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Stinger engine? 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 cause your Kia Stinger engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia Stinger oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 Stinger spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
