Covered miles

Reduced engine oil level

The engines of Kia K5 have specific performance because of the oil flow. They have a particular oil level because of their specifications and manufacturing limits.

The oil level reduces due to internal leaks and triggers this warning message. The warning does not indicate the number of covered miles according to the maintenance schedule limitations.

It indicates the reduced oil level inside the engine. The contaminated oil does not perform at the standard level.

As a result, its efficiency and flow speed reduce and decrease oil levels. In such circumstances, you can see a warning message on its dashboard.

It is a warning that indicates the oil swap to maintain its level inside the engine. Removal of contaminated engine oil from the vehicle engine and repairing the leakage holes are included in the service schedule of these vehicles.

Malfunctioning filter

The Kia K5 has high-performance 2.5L engines with a specific oil filter. It can capture and remove the accumulated debris from the engine oil.

The filter cleans the lubricant and increases its efficiency span. The dust and debris can damage the engine oil filter.

In such circumstances, it does not function and trigger the service required message on the display of your car. You should check the filter performance and condition before adding more oil to the engine.

This notification indicates the malfunctioning of the engine filter. The broken filter requires replacement for its stable performance.

In such circumstances, the filter can clean the lubricant to improve its efficiency, which increases from the standard level.

Changing the number of miles till the next maintenance is optional because these vehicles have an oil swap schedule after 5000 miles.

Rotations of tires

The warning indicates the service of tires and safety mechanisms of these cars. Tire rotation is a technique to rotate the tires with specific techniques.
