Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent
Hi, i have a hyundai accent glx 2001, which has clocked around 155000 k's on the odo. the car needs topping up oil(as per dipstick showing low) between 700 ml to a litre in around 1000 kms. i recently got the rings piston and sleeves replaced and for some time it seemed ok but after about 10000 kms the problem seems to have resurfaced. also when the oil is topped to the full mark on the dipstick there is some smoke(white) from the exhaust. my mechanic says its because the the car used to consume oil hence there is some still left in the exhaust due to which the smoke is there. when it runs low the lifters start making noise and thats how i come to know that it need topping up(on double checking with the dipstick ofcourse). also to note is that during the piston work, the main engine seal had also given way and had to be replaced. now the mechanic says that its blown again and needs replacing. what could be the problem? as i feel that my mechanic is just fleecing me with all these excuses while the real problem is something else. can u please help.
Hi ..... With this milage I'd expect at the same time the following would have been done, valve seals changed, valve guides checked/replaced, bores honed and valves reground into the cylinder head. Not to have done any of these is false economy and bad engineering practice.
The symptoms you state, esp'ly on topping up, point towards valve seals or guides.
Take the plugs out and examine, they should all be a light tan. Carryout a compression test across the bores and come back with the results.
