Kia Spectra 2002 manual shift.light smoke from catalytic convertor

If the "smoke" is actually water vapor, you probably have a cracked head. Check the radiator often, and check the oil to make sure there is no water in it. If there is water in the oil, it will be milky or foamy looking on the dipstick. If all is well there after checking everything, it may be starting to burn a little oil.

2002 kia spectra burning alot of oil but no smoke and no leaks to be found what can this be?


The problem can be caused by bad Valve seals, or bad Piston oil rings.

A sign that you need new rings since excessive loss of oil and white smoke means oil is going to the combution chamber of the engine and bad rings are letting that happen. take it to a technician to make sure you get it right. Thank you for visiting Fixya.
