Are you very sure its spitting out gas? If smoke is light in color, you have a blown head gasket-coolant level will drop and you can smell the odor of coolant in the air. If you're sure you have unburned fuel spitting out your exhaust, this is extremely dangerous to everyone around you so don't run it and get it to a shop or reply back to me...

2002 KIA SPECTRA USING EXCEESSIVE AMOUNT OF OIL. WHITE SMOKE FROM EXHAUST.POOR ENGINE PERFORMANCE


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.

Where are the 02 sensors located on a 23005 Kia


They are located on the exhaust system, most cars have atleast 2, the first is the before the cat converter or also known as the up steam o2, The second being the down stream o2 which is located behind the cat converter.

They almost look like a spark plug sticking out of the exhaust pipe with a few wires coming out the top of it.

o2 Sensors can be very costley I would suggest having your local auto parts store such as Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts resetting your engine light, They will do it for free, also if you use some high test gas for your emissions inspection as well as make sure the car is run for a little bit before going to have the test you will find by doing this it will drop all your numbers needed to pass the test.

It is a very good chance that once the light is reset it won't come back on.

Good Luck and I hope this helps.
