I have a 2009 Kia Sportage 2.7L LX and I would like to know what brands you personally use in your Sportage.

What:
Oil & Filter
Antifreeze
Transmission Fluid
Lube Oil
etc...

Also do you use any additives such as ones for fuel?


Thanks! :)

Oil, any brand synthetic, 5W40 Have only used Castrol, Mobil and Valvoline.
Oil Filter, OEM or Ryco only
Transmission - nulon synthetic
Differential/Transfer case - nulon synthetic.
Antifreeze - no idea, it was green.

Use what your manual states to, there is no reason to use anything else Period......

I did not mean "Kia" fluids, anything that meets what they are asking for is what I was saying. You don't need a dealer for fluids, or to meet the the specs that your manual is asking for.

Like why use 15w40 if the sportage is calling for 5w20.

Manual states that. Or the oil cap most likely has the grade oil you need.
Or post this in the sorento forum for a better response.

I did the 15w-40 thing for a while, and it cost me about 2mpg!
