Kia Niro Covers for Oil Filter and Oil Plug

Asked by Guru5F7ZQ Feb 06, 2018 at 08:38 PM about the 2017 Kia Niro EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2017 Kia NIRO - We just
discovered the external covers
that are supposed to be over the
oil filter and oil plug were never
put back on.(assuming they were
there to begin with)  Are these
necessary and could this have
anything to do with our recent
mpg going down drastically.  I
would think they are there for a
reason but would like to hear it
from a pro.   Thanks.

Yes the dealer. Had the vehicle back several times to diagnose major mpg decrease after the first oil chg. A friend mechanic discovered them missing. Going back to dealer. Thanks for your help.
