Oil issue

Asked by SorentoOwner46 May 20, 2019 at 04:33 PM about the 2017 Kia Sorento LX FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Today I was driving to work and upon arrival
I saw my oil light flash on. So, I decided to
check my oil on my 2017 (35,800 miles)
Sorento and it was bone dry. Took it in, they
found no leaks. Saying now they want to do
a oil consumption test. So I have to take it
back when I drive it for 1,000 miles so they
can check how much oil is getting
consumed. After reading all these post, I'm
thinking come tomorrow,  I am going to call
Kia manufacturer and let them know what's
going on and see about getting something
done to resolve this issue. I have kids of my
own and I am a Nanny who car pools kids
around. I dont need the added responsibility
of something happening to kids while I am
driving what could potentially be a
hazardous vehicle. From the sounds of it,
Kia is telling all service (maintenance) to
perform these consumption tests and after
they receive xxx amount they can do another

I have a 17 kia sorento 2.4L engine same issue. One day I figured I would check the oil and it was almost not on the dipstick 45,000 miles. How did you make out reporting it 2 kia?

I have a 2017 as well. I recently took it in for an oil change and it didn't register on the dipstick! I had my oil changed and a week later I had to add a half quart! Now my husband has been checking it regularly every week and always has to add some. I'm thinking I'll just trade it in because my 50K warranty just expired

kia has a major oil gasket problem`s with their Hyundai as well. Oil pan gaskets,Oil filter O rings, Oil guague sending unit O rings. Which means you will lose a Motor sooner then later.To bad. Nice vehicle if it wasn`t for that. if you have a one of these vehicle always check the area where you park it after you move it and see if their is oil in that spot.
