Can I put 10w40 instead of 5w30?
Your vehicle doesn’t require five-way-30 oils. The recommended viscosity of oil of your car, as per Kia documentation is 10W-40. If you operate your vehicle in frigid weather, that is, temperatures lower than freezing, you may use 5W-30 oil. However, even 10W-40 is fine to use when temperatures outside are lower than freezing.
What’s the difference between 5w40 and 5w30?
