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.

My logik freezer wont freeze


Hi, the motor (compressor) is not working, or the gas is not circulating properly due to a blocked choke ( A much thicker short section of the piping housed at the back of the body) or the gas is leaking out, probably by now there is no more gas in the pipes. But first check to see and hear if the motor is working when switched on.If the motor does run, then it is definitely a gas circulation problem due to the two mentioned above facts. Only the repair man can help in any one of these circumstances
If there is a gas leak, then you will have to buy a new freezer.as present day modern freezers are too labor intensive to strip down to access the piping in order to repair an internal leak. If the leak is external then it is easily repairable.
Hope i have been of help
Good luck

2007 Yukon xl denali burning oil


If you smell burning oil, you may have a leak in the engine compartment reaching the exhaust manifold and burning on contact. The most common cause for that is leaking valve cover gaskets. If you are losing oil with NO signs of external leaks, the engine may be burning it internally. Valve stem oil seals, worn piston rings, blown/leaking head gasket are a few causes of that.

Unit leak at high pressure port. repair man replaced valve charged unit.cooled for a short time then stopped cooling.another repair man found low coolant,thought evoperator leak to be the cause. injected...


Sorry about your problems.
The StopLeak is expensive and does not work on leaks larger than 8 ounces per year.
Neither of these "technicians" confirmed the location of the leak and repaired it.
When the vacuum was done on the system a leak would have been obvious after the first tech replaced a valve.
If they did not see a rise in pressure,they are incompetent.
I apologize for not having an answer for you,but,without being there and checking your system,I do not know what your specific problem is.

Making noise when spinning


HI there.This sounds like the centre bearing & seal are worn causing noise & water leak.It's normally called a Hub & Seal Kit.It is quite an involved job & without the right tools it would probably cost somewhere around $300 upwards to have repaired.Very good quality machine & worth while repairing.Try to avoid useing the machine until repaired as you could cause electrical short due to water leaking.

Vehical acts as if it shifts between gears at a


The possibilities are:
low/high trans fluid level
short or open in LR pressure switch circuit
solenoid pack internal problem
40-way connector problem (9, 47, or 50 cavity)
control module failure
and then internal transmission problem (the rebuild).
Another table lists these possibilities:
faulty cooling system
torque converter clutch failure (that requires removal)
internal solenoid leak
too high or too low pressure
valve body leak
regulator valve
stuck/sticky valves
worn or damaged accumulator seal rings
damaged clutch seals
damaged L/R clutch
worn pump

Only the seal rings and L/R clutch damage and torque converter clutch failure would dictate a rebuild.
All the other items are serviceable without removing the trans, and involve the solenoid box for the most part which is external and accessible. So armed with these possible causes I would shop around to find a trans shop that would take a look at the alternatives to a rebuild job. The rebuild is in the range of $2k, so spending some time on the alternatives seems to be in order.

Craftsman 33 gallon air comp keeps kicking breaker


There are several conditions that would cause the problem that you have. Worn bearings, weak capacitor, or leaking in-tank checkvalve. Worn bearings would allow armature to drag against the field windings. Easy to check, motor shaft will feel loose in housing and the bearings will be noisy when you turn by hand. Motor capacitors should read to within 95% of uf value printed on side. You must remove at least one lead and short connectors for a moment then read with meter. Repair shops will generally test for free if you do not have a cap. tester. The in-tank check valve will cause undue strain on the motor if it leaks pressure back to pump from tank. Follow air discharge hose to brass valve at tank. Simple test with air in tank remove airline at checkvalve and look/listen or soapy water. Replace if it leaks or remove and clean debris till no leak. If motor strains with no air in tank I would rule-out check valve. One final condition, which is rare, is the flyball switch inside of motor. The motor has a start winding and run winding. Contacts to this internal switch will sometimes fuse in start position and cause your condition, however a motor stuck in this position will make an unusal sound because it cannot switch to run position. (like a car stuck in first gear) If you feel that this could be the problem, remove motor rear cover and sand contacts. Good Luck on your repair and email if you have specific question.

Dishwasher leaks water


hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
