Question about 1997 Hyundai Accent
The car seems to leak oil and was smoking inside the car..what can I do?
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.

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.

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.
