Metal shavings in oil

408 Views 13 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  191145
Hi all,
I have sportage 2022 4th generation GDI 2.4, for now it has 3800 mile odometer, this is my second time changing the oil, first time it was only 500 mile and today it has 3800 mile, in both oil changes I notices metal shavings and I wonder if its normal or that is an issue, and if it could stop suddenly because of this issue as I will be travelling about 600 mile in one drive next week (there will be no road service or assistance).
Is it true new engines have such shavings?
How to check the engine?
BTW, the engine consumed about 200-300 ml of oil in this 3300 mile.
Thanks a lot.

This is how it looks

8 ounces of oil in 3300 miles is not serious oil use, but I have a feeling it is going to get worse. KIA has had big problems with shavings from manufacturing remaining in the engines. I'm afraid you will need a new engine before too long.
