2021 Kia Telluride Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2021 Kia Telluride Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Kia Telluride’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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 2021 Kia Telluride’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Telluride may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Kia Telluride. 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 Telluride?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2021 Kia Telluride motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Kia has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2021 Telluride. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Telluride’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential 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 style, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2021 Kia Telluride

  • Should I check my Kia Telluride motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Kia Telluride engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Kia Telluride 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Kia Telluride spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
