Engine oil type and module for kia sephia 2000

I recommend Valvoline 10-30. It is by far the best oil on the market. But be sure to always use the same brand because if you always change brands then the oil pan seals will break down faster. I hope this helps please rate this Thank You

How do I change the oil on my Kia Sephia? There is a piece of metal under the engine, so I cannot see the oil pan. Do I have to take that off to do any maintenance on the engine?

Take off protection pan (5bolts) and also decorative panel on top (1bolt). Also remove the resonator box on top of the engine (1bolt and 2nuts).
So you ready to make oil change.
Good luck.

Transmission fluid capacity for 2000 Kia Sephia?

The four speed automatic shows a total fill (that is all the fluid it can hold) is 5.7 Quarts. So if you just dropped the pan and relplaced the filter, you shouldnt need more than 4 quarts and likely you would have a little extra with that.
