    go to your kid dealer and get an oil change with a kia oil filter. the oil filter is different than one you get in an auto parts store. it will hold some of the oil on top of the engine. if you use an after market oil filter all the oil will start to move (gravity) to the lower part of the engine (oil pan). if you get an oil change somewhere else & you use the kia oil filter tell them to CHANGE "ALL" THE O-RINGS on the filter and the canister. But the best bet is to go the the kia dealer and get it done correctly. It take about 30 to 60 minutes for the oil to move to the lower part of the engine. but look at it this way you have a WARRANTY do what they say and get all your maintenance done at kia.
