Dear customer, forgive me for this delay in communicating with you, the weekends are complicated for me to be on the platform,observing your query, I would like to explain to you that an engine life depends more on the made maintenance rather than the duration, the Sportage diesel engine can last up to 250,000 to 500,000 km (155K miles to 310K miles), explaining a little better I can tell you that, replacing the oils punctually every 5 thousand km(3k Miles) or before, replacing every certain mileage the kit according to the manufacturer's specifications, not using additives, using the appropriate fuel, making the replacing of air and fuel filters, cleaning the tank and throttle body among other things. Among other maintenance, this is what gives life to the engine and not only to the engine, also to the gearbox, to the brakes to everything dear customer, because of this it is necessary to follow meticulously the recommendations of the dealerships because those are the ones given by the manufacturer.
