White smoke during startup is indicative of a blown head gasket and/or cracked cylinder head..
Have the cylinders pressure tested to verify.
Do not use engine additives to try and stop the leak. They do not work.

I have a code of PO456 Hyundai 2007 Accent


This tends to be a Fuel cap seal, when getting fuel be sure to tighten the gas cap at least three clicks. Any parts store should be able to reset the service engine light, if the light persists, remove your negative battery cable for 30 seconds with the ignition turned to the run position. replace negative battery cable and and the code should be gone. This resets your cars computer. Be aware that this also rests the Drive Learn program, and the car will take 10-15 miles to reset this, it may run a bit rough during those 10-15 miles but should clear up afterwards.

Well, you have to be quite specific with the color of your smoke. White smoke indicates water vapor and Blue smoke indicates oil. If the mnornings are chilly, you can almost always expect to see water vapor smoke. Another thing is how much smoke is it? You can try an engine oil additive such as Restore or change the type of oil you use in your engine. It's hard to say without a lil more detail, but if you replaced all that and it runs smooth and quiet, then I wouldn't worry a whole lot about it. Without being remanufactured, a 2000 engine aint gonna run like new in 2011 no matter what you do to it. Hope this helps.

How often should the oil be changed on a 2007 hatchback accent. (vic5413@verizon.net)


Every 3000 miles for conventional oil
Every 5000 miles for synthetic oil
Or every three months or so if you don't drive that much

Does the 2007 hyundai accent GS hatchback have a "zero clearance" engine? if the timing belt breaks, will is cause severe damage to the engine?


No it will wipe out the valves.. usually all of the exhaust valves. Here is the interval for changing the timing belt on your Hyundai..
"Normal service replace every 60,000 miles or 48 months. Severe service replace every 40,000 miles or 48 months."

White smoke occasionally coming out of my Altima tail pipes.


If there is no loss of Coolant, which is a sign of Head gasket failure to the combustion area, which generates white smoke, I would recommend after 4000 miles of your mileage alone, a complete Service of Engine Oil and filter, AIR filter and Fuel filter.
An inexpensive way to find a recurring combustion problem, At 60k miles, the Spark plugs should still be good, but pull them anyway, just to confirm.

I would say very good possiblity to be the cv shaft or cv shafts but you might try a tune up first change out the spark plugs and spark plug wires if that hasn't been done in 30,000-40,000 miles.If you have the cv axle or axles changed you will have to have it realigned again.

White smoke or semi white can be produced in several ways. One way is oil this is normally a whitish blue to blue smoke and has the apparent smell of oil being burned. Next could be antifreeze when it is being burned it has a sweet type of smell and tends to dissipate in the air rather quickly and usually is because of a bad head gasket. Next is automatic transmission fluid which is normally found on automatic transmissions and its normally drawn into an engine thru a vacuum line via a defective transmission modulator valve or some other defective part. Transmission fluid is very apparent and billows out so bad that you can't see anything behind you. Last but not least another type of smoke that is not white but black is the presents of to much gas/fuel being burned in the engine. If one of these fluids is low and/or you notice one of the symptoms that I pointed out above, then you know where to start looking for a fix.

I would also check your oil for discoloration. If it is a brownish color it could mean your oil and antifreeze are mixing and has the potential to damage your bearings.

02 accent sounds like it wants to turn off while driving


trust the guy who said the other guy was full of it, I doubt it is the timing belt at 72,000 miles, more likely the idle speed control motor needs to be cleaned or a you have a defective MAP or MAF sensor...
