Engine oil viscosity (thickness) has an effect on fuel economy and cold weather operating (engine start and engine oil flowability). 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. Proceed to select the recommended oil viscosity from the chart.

  1. Your numbers for the 2021 Kia Sorento are WRONG! For 2021 models, Kia does not use a 6-cyl engine, but instead Kia uses a 2.5L 4-Cyl engine in its 2021 models.
