Thanks Ron-

Can you only purchase the OEM oil filters from a KIA dealership?

You can get them on eBay, but for the best deal PM @cobra259 who is a MOD here and a Kia parts manager.

The quickest for this service would be the closest dealership.

**** UPDATE ******

I went to the oil change place where I used to take the Borrego before I moved (and never had problems with
their filters or oil) and had them change the oil and use mobil 1 5w20 synthetic.

Put over 1800 miles on my trip and pulled a uhaul on the way back. The check engine light was off all day (~14hours) on the way back and
the day after and came on for about 20 minutes but has been off since...

thanks everyone for your suggestions

I like it when it stays off but it does still come on once in
a while for short periods of time...

Not quite sure what to do about that as taking it to a
mechanic may be hit or miss.
