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.

Isuzu 3000/Diesel/Turbo/Wizard, I can see a bit of Oil coming from Intake/ThroughBody direct to the Turbo & there also a White Smoke from the exhaust + Misfiring and the car is not pooling as uses to be......


Turbo shaft oil seal is probably leaking a little bit, though not ideal it isn't unusual and not particularly detrimental (mostly).

The white smoke indicates either a water or coolant ingress into the combustion chamber or an excess fuel condition. A small fuel excess usually results in a increasingly dark smoke, grey to sooty black and sometimes an increased diesel knock but large amounts of excess fuel results in white smoke which is unburned fuel.
This is often the result when the fuel injectors are sticking, dribbling, leaking and misfiring could also be a further symptom. Bad starting could be caused by several things needing attention but poor injector performance can be a major factor.

I suggest you have the injectors removed and tested.

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.

I have 2002 Mia spectra and the engine life is on saying p1404


P0404....Exhaust Gas Recirculation Control Circuit Range/Performance

the P1404 code doesnt exist in the kia data codes but this one is in the generic codes and if its correct its showing a fault with the EGR valve but i would take it to a kia garage if you have been able to read the codes correctly

97 kia sephia smokes when first starts, smells like exhaust smoke


Black smoke is fuel.
Blue is oil.
White is coolant / water.

Fuel is caused by timing and cold start system and requires some discussion to clarify.

Oil burning only on start is caused by failing rings on your cylinders. Oil then enters the combustion chambers and burns when you start the engine. If it continues to burn when running in particular when you accelerate it will also indicate ring/cylinder failure. It can also be from a failing head gasket where oil travels from the lubrication system into the combustion chamber. Some of the anti smoke additives available at the auto supply store do help.

I doubt you are seeing white as you say is smells like exhaust. White is coolant in the combustion chamber or exhaust system.


Hope this helps you.

Smoke from the exhaust while accelerating, shaking, check engine light flashing, stalls while accelerating


If the smoke is white and sweet smell it is the head gasket. If it is black and smell like oil it is more than likely the mount is bad.. a bad piston,

2002 KIA spectra exhaust manifold


The exhaust manifold is right there as soon as you open hood , first disconnect neg batt cab, then jack up car remove bolts that hold pipe to manifold together , unplug any o2 that is in the way and that could get damaged. now from the top take shield off then take manifold bolts out. you might want to spray them with pb blaster and let set a few hours sense exhaust bolts love to break. Remember to use new gaskets installing new one.
