    Thanks

    As far as replacing or even rebuilding the engine, This is something i will not be doing as the costs involved would exceed the value of the car.



    i may have a stab at the tappets and lifters as a medium term fix but will have to look at a new low cost car

Sounds to me that it is using to much oil and its time for a rebuild or replacement. the noise you here is most likely lifters and tappets, when it gets low on oil it will do this, and if it gets to low it will burn up the rod and main bearings. what you need to do is deside what you want to do with the car, rebuild engine or replace, i don't have any idea on price, but all you have to do is call a local salvage yard and get a price on a used engine, and then a shop that does rebuilds. and weight the diiference, i think you will find it will be cheaper to just get another car. i can give you a gusstament on cost,used engine, 400 to 600 + labor, rebuild 1000 to 2000+ labor. remember thies are just guessaments. you will have to call around your area to get the correct prices.

My hyundai accent 2000model is emiting blue smoke


Hi Tony,

Blue smoke means it is burning oil... Not a good sign. Bring it to a good mechanic.

My 2001 hyundai accent uses a lot of oil though there are no sign of leaks or smoke.


what do you consider a "lot" of oil? some use of oil is normal. 1 to 2 quarts between oil changes is normal for an older vehicle.

Engine oil change - Quantity


Its 3 1/2 Quarts, but you might as well put a full 4 quarts in if it goes through that much. make sure you change the filter aswell! dirty oil will not cause your engine to go through it any faster. Is the oil leaking or is the engine burning it?

Tapping sound in The engine Head


Sounds like lifter noise. The best solution for lifter noise is, change the oil use a good quality oil , i would recommend a synthetic oil or at least a couple of quarts. Then get a bottle of MARVEL MYSTERY OIL this stuff works good add that to you oil when you change it and that should clear up any lifter noise. Another thing that might help use a higher grade gas a couple of times.

Hyundai accent engine oil consumption


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.

Ticking noise in engine and blue smoke in exhaust


the tapping are the lifts tapping because there is no oil getting to the top of the motor. the blue smoke is the oil burning.could be the head gasket is going bad or the piston rings are done in.

Hi I have a 2001 hyundai accent, the car it drinking alot of engine oil and there is no leak or excess exhaust fumes - this yellow check engine light is also always on. What would this indicate?


Take it to a shop that can read the codes from the computer. It's called an OBD scan. As for the oil problem there is only 2 ways it can be leaving the engine. 1 is that it's being burned which is will have blueish smoke coming from the exhaust. 2 is a leak. I always try to park on some clean cardboard and that makes it easy to see the drops. If it doesn't leak while just sitting there have it run for 15mins while on the cardboard. Oh and 3 someones letting it out. Do you have any enemies?
