Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
Replace the valve cover gasket,
and make sure that it comes with the spark plug tube seals. probably
replace the plugs if they need it, and the plug wires should be
replaced if they've gotten very much oil on them since the oil
degrades their ability to insulate, and the plugs will start arcing up
the sides and engine will start misfiring.
Check the seals around the inside of the spark plug chambers, where the valve cover meets, could be seaping in from there

SOURCE: thick blue smoke. no oil
Hi! Chris, There are many causes of oil burning or exhaust smoke. There are three different causes of normal oil burning, 1; worn valve guides (smoking during deceleration), 2; worn cylinders and piston rings (smoking during acceleration), 3; split or worn out valve seal, or damaged intake manifold gasket (smoking all the time). Of course there are several variables in this equation. Sometimes coolant can also get into a cylinder and cause a blueish smoke. If you remove the spark plugs and use a pressure pump on the coolant system (radiator), coolant should leak into the intake manifold or cylinder. Coolant leaking into the intake manifold will leak into several cylinder through the valves. So, what year and how many miles are on the Jaguar?
