2012 kia sedona white smoke comes out of exhast when first started

My 2012 sedona emits white smoke when first started. It uses a qt of oil every 750 miles. The level of antifreeze stays the same. No loss of power. The oil light never came on. Valve seals?

White smoke is usually an indication of burning antifreeze and burning oil would have a more bluish tint to it and smell like burning oil. If it's a 2012, isn't it still covered by the KIA warranty though??

SOURCE: air bag light

if the air bag stays on that means you have a problem with the air bag system, and you need to have it diagnose, but if you just bought the sedona from a used car dealer they have to fix it, it is part of the safety inspection requred by law

SOURCE: Loss of power/Engine Sputters going up hill

Check our air filter. Nine times out of ten it is something very minor .If you have not changed your air filter in a while, this could cause the loss of power going uphill. On flat ground the vehicle does not have to work as hard as uphill. If your air filter is dirty, this will hamper the carb from breathing properly, thus no power.

SOURCE: THE AIRBAG LIGHT IS STAYING ON

Sounds like there is a fault in the control unit that will have to be serviced or replaced. This will have to be done by certified tech.

I have a 2005 Kia Sedona 3.5 that I fill it with water and I put 50/50 antifreeze in the reservoir . 2 days later nothing , and I never see a leak , never ??


Any white smoke from exhaust? Any white foam in the oil? Water doesn't just disappear. It must be going somewhere. Bad radiator cap letting coolant escape while driving? Any overheating?

Where is the fuel regulator kia sedona


check the turbo for failure and check the intercooler for cracks and leaks . check the hose clamps . have the tips of the injectors cleaned / replaced and if you want to blow the engine continue to use easy start. Diesels are compression ignition engines and that means the air is white hot at the point of injection of the diesel and any fuel substance introduced will spontaneous ignite and bend con-rods and crack pistons.

Excessive smoking inspite of new nozzles and newly calibrated injection pump


One of two things as far as i know that can cause this...
1... piston rings are shot (smokes all the time but worse when its cold)
2... Valve stem seals (mostly smokes when you accelerate)
Hope this is of use..

Kia Sedona oil light white smoke


Are you sure this is not the low oil pressure warning light, bet that it is. The white smoke may be from a blown head gasket, any shop can tell you just by the smell of the smoke, if it smells "sicky Sweet" then it is coolant being burned in the engine and you have big problems.

White smoke coming out tail pipe and useing oil on a 2002 7.3


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If it's only on cold start ups, then it's ok. You should be glad for it's a sign of engine in top condition. If the white smoke doesn't stop even when running then you may have a worn out piston rings which will surely require replacement to resolve the problem.

It surely is burning oil that's why it emits white smoke.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Leaking valvecover


Depends on how much it is leaking. I would check the oil every so often depending on how much oil it was leaking.

Have the coolant lines checked that go to your rear air conditioning. Located near the exhast pipes. We had a similar issue and found that there is a small area that is not protected by weather, road, etc. and corrodes. This is a known issue by KIA but they will not cover it under any of their warranties. We had a KIA dealer tell us our engine was blown because he noticed antifreeze coming from the exhast pipe while up on the rack. Tried to tell us we would need to replace entire engine until they realized it was antifreeze dripping from coolant lines and dropping onto exhast pipe. I believe that since we had this repaired, there was tech report for KIA repair shops regarding this problem. Cost of repair - $700.00. This is only one of several issues I have had with this van - will never buy or recommend anyone to buy KIA. KIA does not stand behind their so called "warranty".
