Run fault codes to find the reason for the over fueling that heated the cat converter. Possible no damage as the cat converters run at a high temperature to work properly. As to the oil leaks --replace and gaskets and re-tension any gasket studs.

SOURCE: I don't think it has

Gunk makes an oil solvent that stops oil burning. The smoke coming from exhaust would be o-ring issue. If its white smoke its oil, if its blue smoke its gas. Also Gunk makes a stop smoke solvent as well. Both these items are around 5 bucks at autozone and will help the issue. But the burning of the oil is def killing your gas mileage. But try those two gunk solvents and see if that helps.

Happened to me, too. On Hyudai Getz 1.5 CRDi (3 cylinder). It was just jammed butterfly (air regulator) where air is entering to machine for combustion. Due to low quality diesel soot is gathering on this butterfly and finally blocks it. However, the same problem could appear if air filter is full of dirt or blocked by dirt, or if there is computer problem in sending wrong information for combustion to engine.

Replace timing belts crank sensor runs rough at idle an exaust gets cherry red


This could be several things. One is obstructed CAT. The most common cause though is the engine is running so rich it is dumping unburned fuel into the exhaust. This could be a bad injector sticking exhaust valve, constant misfire etc. Don't run it like this or you will end up with a pile of charcoal and steel where your car is supposed to be.

Why is my 2000 kia sephia blowing blue smoke from the tailpipe. it has 86,000 miles. the check oil warning light is on even though the dipstick reads full.


The most common cause of blue exhaust smoke is oil leaking past engine seals and into the cylinders where it then mixes and burns with the fuel. This is most frequently seen in older or high mileage cars with worn seals and gaskets. It only requires a very small amount of oil leaking into the cylinders to cause excessive blue exhaust smoke.

Blue exhaust smoke only at start-up can indicate worn piston seals or damaged or worn valve guides which may also cause a rattling noise. An external engine oil leak can drip onto hot engine and exhaust parts causing what appears to be blue exhaust smoke. Other possible causes of blue exhaust smoke include: piston wear, worn valve seals, a dirty or non-functioning PCV valve, worn piston rings, an intake manifold gasket leak, worn engine oil seals and possibly even head gasket failure.

Oil leaking into the cylinders can cause a rough idle, misfire and fouled spark plugs. In addition, a reduction in power and oil loss can be indicators that the blue exhaust smoke is caused by an internal engine oil leak. Internal engine oil leaks can also allow fuel to mix with the oil in the crankcase which will degrade the oil and prevent it from adequately protecting the engine.

Operating a car with a severely dirty oil filter, air filter or improperly functioning PCV valve can also sometimes result in engine oil blow-by, oil loss and blue exhaust smoke. Periodically checking the engine oil level with the oil dip stick will indicate if there is excessive oil consumption. Higher viscosity engine oil can sometimes temporarily reduce the amount of blow-by; however, this is not generally recommended. Excessive blue exhaust smoke indicates a possible internal engine oil leak that should be inspected by an ASE certified mechanic.

Cadilac coverter is turning cherry red and the car is acting like it is not getting gas


Catalytic convertor turns red for a few reasons , the main reason is because the fuel system is running lean(vacume leak) in the intake manifold or your timing is offset as well as a clogged fuel filter and or bad fuel pump, another reason can be from getting clogged from driving the car for a prolonged period of time with the lean condition , it can also get clogged if your engine is smoking heavily from the exhaust due to oil burning. in most states the catalytic is required for emissions laws, i don't know prices where you are but here we change out the convertors with an aftermarket one for $185.00 give or take depending on the flow capacity required once you have it changed you should have the "lean" condition looked at so you dont burn up the new one

I have a 2002 Buick Century and soon after I start it white smoke comes out of the exhuast pipe. I don't believe coolant is getting in to the oil, so I was just wondering if I can keep driving the car...


If the white smoke comes out for 15 to 30 seconds your engine is ok. Condensation does build up inside the engine and as well as the exhaust and will burn out in that amount of time. If the white smoke is continuely extracted from the exhaust pipe you do have coolant leaking through the head gasket

Grey smoke from exhaust


Hi. This will be a turbo issue. It is malfunctioning.


The turbo unit is the power booster for the engine. Its main function is to push air into the engine and is operated by the exhaust gases. When the unit fails, it could cause the turbine to stick, which would cause drastic loss of power or what you are experiencing now,which will be, oil leakages into the exhaust turbine area. This oil leak will, generally, emit a very high level of grey smoke.


Basically, your turbo is damaged. it will need to be replaced.
