Would have been good to put all that in your first post.2012 Kia Sorento has 2.4 gdi engine and I’ve been using valvoline 5w20 full synthetic vet since 3 years , it’s been burning oil ever since ,thought maybe changin brands and use what Kia dealer uses maybe will help amd I use oem Kia oil filter , same with my boys 2009 Hyundai Elantra I use 5w20 full synthetic valvoline and burns litle bit to , jaut looking for some opinions
It's a better choice than the Kia Quartz synblend sold at the dealer.I purchased pennzoil high mileage full synthetic for Kia Sorento and Hyundai Elantra , , Hyundai has 141 k and Kia has 120 k , I thought would be better since it’s for high mile cars and it’s also full synthetic, or should I just returned and get just full synthetic what u guys think ?
I will report , but which one is better high mileage full synthetic or platinum full synthetic, I can return , if it’s better platinum full synthetic,Walmart is 5 min driveIt's a better choice than the Kia Quartz synblend sold at the dealer.
You already purchased the Pennzoil. So try it and report back on how you like it next year.
Don't understand the question.I will report , but which one is better high mileage full synthetic or platinum full synthetic, I can return , if it’s better platinum full synthetic,Walmart is 5 min drive
omgIf your using more oil than you think you should. Read this forum. Kia seems to have issues with oil consumption. At 65k miles mine is now showing the same issues described in the below discussion
2016 Kia Sorento 2.4
Burning oil - We have a 2016 Kia Sorento on three different occasions the Kia has burned all of oil between oil changes once around 30,000 changes the ...www.cargurus.com
Some do some don’t, I’ve check mine a lot, never needed to add oil between changes. Then around 50k it would be 1/2 qt low when it was time to change oil. Kia manual states Synthetic oil usually should be changed at 7,500 . Kia recommends getting your 2016 Kia Sorento oil & filter changed at 3,000-5,000 miles for conventional oil. Which seems excessive to me so I go 5k on synthetic. But never really needed to add oil. It just seems one day I checked it and it was unusual low so I added a quart. And it seems to be ever since it using oil more and more. Sticking my finger in the exhaust pipe and seeing oil on my finger confirms I have a bigger issue.omg
Just about everyone that replied on that forum at carguru.com does 7.5k OCIs and many let their dipstick run two quarts low before refilling.
Change your oil at 3.75k and never let the dipstick get more than a half-quart low. Always use synthetic 5w30 Dexos 1 Gen 2 oil and not 5w20 conventional or synblend oils.
I'm not saying what I suggest is a cure. But proper oil maintenance will surely lengthen the time before the consumption starts getting out-of-hand.
