this sounds like an electronic problem. the control unit thinks about 50000 cycles in a second. it's bound that there could be a problem. a second hand black box or computer box should fix your propblem. goodluck

usually caused by excessive valve guide clearance. Have new inserts installed or could possibly get by with knurling the guides. Hve a mechanic pull the heads and check for excessive guide clearance.

Why is my 2000 kia sephia blowing blue smoke from the tailpipe. it has 86,000 miles. the check oil warning light is on even though the dipstick reads full.


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.

Blue smoke is an indication that you are burning oil. This typically happens through the rings on the pistons but can also be caused from valves. If the vehicle is running ok then it is most likely blowing by the rings. The vehicle probably has high miles and the way to stop the blue smoke is replacing the rings which can get very expensive. This does not mean that the vehicle will tear up tomorrow though.

Where are all the oil leaks.. that causes the car to smoke


when a car is smoking from oil leaks like what your describing its due too several things. commonly is that your head gasket could be torn or just old and is mildly leaking oil into your piston cylinders. The other issue is your piston rings could also be bad and in that case you will have too pull the bottom half of your engine apart too replace the rings. Oh i almost forgot that the valve cover gaskets could also be old and that would cause a leak onto your exhaust manifold, thous causing it too smoke as well

If you're sure it's "smoke", then it's probably burning oil. But most likley it's water vapor. When an engine is first started and the air is cold, the water vapor in the exhaust will create visible steam. Automotible exhaust primarily consists of carbon dioxide and water vapor. If the engine and exhaust system are cold, the exhaust will be cooler when it comes out and it can create a cloud of water vapor.
However, if it's not water vapor, as I mentioned above, it could be oil smoke. If that's the case you need an engine rebuild since you probably have bad rings.

My engine is smoking when i start engine on mornings


sounds like valve guids are wearing out.. drying out and cracking. only fix is to replace them. or try a heavier oil. sometimes that will help depending on the severity of the problem.
