Kia Optima Engine Oil Capacity

Engine oil viscosity (thickness) has an effect on fuel economy and cold weather operation (starting and oil flow). Lower-viscosity engine oils can provide better fuel economy and cold-weather performance. However, higher-viscosity engine oils are required for satisfactory lubrication in hot weather. Using oils of any viscosity other than those recommended could result in engine damage.

When choosing an oil, consider the range of temperature your vehicle will be operated in before the next oil change.
