    Could you be a bit more specific as to where the noise seems to be coming from and what seals are blowing out?

The oil level drops after driving the and and it has no oil leakages,what might be the problem


If there are no oil leaks and the engine oil is going down, the engine is burning the oil. The main cause is loose valve guides and/or valve guide seals. The other cause could be stuck piston rings.

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.

Mark II Grande cylinder head noise


Sounds like a bad rod bearing, no cure except a rebuild. I assume you do know the difference between spark knock and bearing knock.

Overfilled the engine with oil now car is smoking and engine is rattling and very noisey why?


If you think you put in too much oil, and you see a lot of foam on the dipstick after-wards and also if you notice lots of smoke coming out of the exhaust ,then you may have to drain some of the oil out. Also if you overfill your engine with oil then it blows the crank case oil seal and it builds up a lot of Odd Pressure and this is not good for the car engine. Due to too much oil:---- High pressure may develop in the crankcase from having too much oil in the engine and can lead to oil leakage, as well as premature engine wear and damages. Just get it drained ASAP. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

I have a oil leak ever since i bought this car. I've changed the head gasket, front crank shaft seal, valve cover seal, and oil pan seal. Could using the old head bolts cause this? I've read that it...


NO if you have been using oil and loosing oil from all the seals and rocker cover and sump gasket then its caused by a thing called BACK PRESSURE,and that is caused by the piston rings worn, or broken top compression rings and a lip in the bore causing the ring gap to be about
6thou per inch causing the back pressure which in turn blowes oil out of all seals and gaskets ..
So take out the breather pipe from the rocker cover and let it blow into a paper towel for 2 minutes and if oil fumes come out the rings are worn.
Plus get a compression test on all cylinders and see if there down to 100 PSI or less.
The new head bolts should be replaced as they could be streached
threads, but not your problem this time
Let me know how you get on ASAP Ron

Burning oil/Pinging/Blow by


POSSIBLE CAUSES - VALVE GUIDE OILS SEALS OR PISTON RINGS - I WOULD DO A WET AND DRY COMPRESSION CHECK AND A LEAKAGE TEST ON ALL CYLINDERS FIRST - A LEAKAGE TEST IS WHERE EACH CYLINDER IN TURN IS PUT ON THE TOP OF ITS FIRING STROKE IE PISTON AT TOP A BOTH VALVES CLOSED CONNECT AN AIR LINE AND PUT IT UNDER PRESSURE - LISTEN FOR HISSING BUY REMOVING THE OIL CAP - A LOUD NOISE - YOU HAVE PROBLEMS - ANDY

2000 gmc both rear tire oil leakage.


You are correct, it's not brake fluid. Check the level in your rear axle, it sounds like you have bad seals in the axles allowing the rear differential gear oil to leak inside the brake drums.
This is a heavy weight oil, 80 or 90 weight. This leakage will ruin your brake pads, and if enough leaks out, your rear differential will blow. The seals aren't expensive, but it's a lot of labor to pull everything apart to get at the seals, plus new rear brakes. My Ford ( and I'm sure your GMC) require removal of the rear axles to change the seals. Good Luck! countrycurt0
