2021 Kia Stinger Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2021 Kia Stinger Oil Changes

Need more info about 2021 Kia Stinger oil changes? 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. 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.”

Your 2021 Stinger’s oil should be changed according to Kia’s recommended oil change 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 engine knocking, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Kia Stinger. Kia has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2021 Stinger. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Stinger’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car 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 style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2021 Kia Stinger

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Kia Stinger? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Kia exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
