If this is a diesel kia then smoking is not a very bad sign. diesels tend to smoke when the diesel injectors are clogged up. this can happen with very poor dirty diesel fuel. take the kia in to a good mechanic. not the agents or kia cause they are going to rip you off. or there is a solvent you can buy at a carparts&accessories that can unclog. just ask for assistance. a diesel starts smoking when the diesel injectors are clogging up. good luck.

Tried blue devil 3 days ago, followed directions to the t. 2nd day ran fine, no smoking , 3rd day after driving 10 min it is smoking extremely bad! Do I need to repeat procedure or is block finished?

Yes, I have had the same experience.
That product is made for various different applications ( different problems.)
If you used it for a blown head gasket, which is the most common usage, and it is smoking white smoke or steam,likely it did not fix the head gasket.
That was my experience on two cars.
You have not mentioned if you put it in for a blown head gasket, or a cracked block .
In any regards, another motor from a salvage yard might be the cheapest fix, if you can get one that has a 90 day guarantee.
God bless your efforts.

How do you change a manifold gasket on a 2002 kia sportage

That is the valve cover gasket not the manifold gasket, oil doesn't flow noise the manifold. Before you replace any parts have the engine pressure washed top and bottom, then after it is clean drive it for about 20 miles and then locate the actual leaking area.

My truck is blowing white smoke out the tail pipe and I have no power wont go but I can idle around its a 2055 f250 turbo diesel, 300000 kms...litterally just started doing this a couple days ...

White smoke for a diesel means air in the fuel system. You will have to start at the engine, I start at the line going to the fuel pump. Get some fuel in a can, remove the line to the supply side of the pump and put another line from the can to the pump. If it starts and doesn't smoke , then you have to work your way back to the tank and find the spot that is sucking air. If it doesn't start the I would replace the filter first, check again. There is a possibility that the injector pump is bad, but these don't usually throw white smoke. They just make the engine have very little power or no start.

White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. white smoke continues you have an internal coolant leak, i.e., cracked head/blown head gasket.

p0440 is evaporative emmision control malfunction. check for disconnected hoses and electical connectors. while performing the work you mentioned, you might have inadvertently disconnected something. if there is a very small leak, then a piece of test equipment known as a smoke machine is used to pump smoke through the system to detect leaks. there is a test port in the engine compartment that has a green cap and is labeled evap test port, max 3 psi. make sure your gas cap is on tight. this is also part of the evap system. the evap system controls fuel fumes from the gas tank by venting them through a filter. are there any other codes? if your code reader is an inexpensive model you might just get general system codes.
