Owner maintenance precautions

Improper or incomplete service may result in problems. This section gives instructions only for the maintenance items that are easy to perform.

WARNING

  • Performing maintenance work on a vehicle can be dangerous. You can be seriously injured while performing some maintenance procedures. If you lack sufficient knowledge and experience or the proper tools and equipment to do the work, have the system serviced by a professional workshop.

    Kia recommends to visit an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.

  • Working under the hood with the engine running is dangerous. It becomes even more dangerous when you wear jewelry or loose clothing.

    These can become entangled in moving parts and result in injury. Therefore, if you must run the engine while working under the hood, make certain that you remove all jewelry (especially rings, bracelets, watches, and necklaces) and all neckties, scarves, and similar loose clothing before getting near the engine or cooling fans.

CAUTION- (Kia Niro Hybrid only)

  • Do not put heavy objects or apply excessive force on top of the engine cover (if equipped) or fuel related parts.
  • When you inspect the fuel system (fuel lines and fuel injection devices), contact a professional workshop. Kia recommends to visit an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.
  • Do not drive long time with the engine cover removed.
  • When checking the engine room, do not go near fire. Fuel, washer fluid, etc. are flammable oils that may cause fire.

CAUTION

  • Before touching the battery, ignition cables and electrical wiring, you should disconnect the battery "-" terminal.

    You may get an electric shock from the electric current.

  • When you remove the interior trim cover with a flat bed (-) driver, be careful not to damage the cover.
  • Be careful when you replace and clean bulbs to avoid burns or electrical shock.

NOTICE

Improper owner maintenance during the warranty period may affect warranty coverage. For details, read the separate Warranty & Maintenance book provided with the vehicle.
