How Often to Change 2020 Kia Stinger Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Stinger’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Kia recommends having your 2020 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Stinger. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Kia Stinger?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2020 Kia Stinger motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2020 Stinger. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Stinger’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

2020 Kia Stinger Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Kia Stinger engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Kia Stinger engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Kia Stinger oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 exhaust smoke gray 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
