Sounds like poor engine rebuilt work. The rings probably were not aligned properly. they need to be placed in their proper positions. The valves, guides, weak spings, etc. (Was your cylinder or head machined) Also you could have used incorrect rings-size. Keep looking online for manual guides

My 2011 Kia Cerato "S" has been using a lot of oil. The cylinder head was re-conditioned and engine serviced. The now engine blows smoke every time on starting. What is the probable cause ?


depends on how the head was reconditioned
were new valve guides installed along with new valves
were the stem seals correctly fitted
was a compression test done to determine the wear condition of the engine
smoke on start up is oil in the combustion chamber from valve stem seals , worn rings , sump pressure from excessive blow by through the line to the air inlet
check for oil leaks ( filter etc ) but using a lot of oil indicates ring problem, excessive bearing clearance overloading the oil control ring
try using a heavier grade of oil 30w 50 or oil for worn motors

Nissan sentra 93 head gasket ga16de


If doing the valve seals the head would most certainly need to come off and upon replacement a new gasket would always need to be used but whilst the head is off the engine check the bores turn the engine by hand untill the pistons go up and down to see what wear is on the bores unless whilst the head is off you go the whole hog and do the piston rings at the same time and the oil rings

Can I fit valve stem seals without taking the head off on 1600 sentra 1997


No you can't..
Fitting valve stem seals involves removing the valve springs. This means the valve has to be held in place by a valve spring compressor (bought from almost any spares outlet). The springs are compressed by placing one end of the compressor tool on the valve face and the other end over the spring cap, then squeezing the tool to compress the spring, then removing the split collets that hold the spring in place, removing the spring cap and spring, then eventually you have access to the stem seals.
The head has to be removed to accomplish all this.

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5L that is leaking oil into the spark plug tubes; can these seals be replaced or does the valve cover have to be replaced?


Yes, you need a Rocker cover (valve cover) Gasket kit. Remove the valve cover, remove all old O-rings and cover gasket, clean grooves and mating surfaces without gouging or scratching them, put the new gaskets on as per factory recommendations, tighten to the proper torque and you're done. The spark plug holes in the cover are part of the valve cover gasket kit. Any Napa, Car Quest, Pep Boys, Auto Zone will have it.

Celica ST 1.8 Valve stem seals


When does it smoke? All of the time, or just when you start it? If it smokes all of the time, consider piston rings. If you have lots of smoke when first starting only, valve seals and possibly worn valve guides are the culprit.
