    Default Kia Pride Engine Problem

    Hey guys I have some questions to ask, Answers will be appriciated.

    Recently I bought kia pride 1997 and i came to know that engine oil reduces after 200 km drive. last time i checked and it reduces about 2 ltr after driving only 200 km.performance of engine is also decreases and white smokes coming out from silencer.Oil can also be seen on the tip of the silencer.
    So what do you guys think is it the ring problem or the whole engine needs over haul?
    Or any recommendation for mechanic?
    Kindly suggest what could be the possible issue and form where to get the job done.
    Thanks in advance

    Not whole engine, compression test reveals the story of the inside engine, that whether it requires seals changing and valve jobs or whole engine.

    Experts will help further.

    Rings are shot. Might even be valve seals. do a compression test and then tell us the numbers.

    All brothers thanks for your prompt reply.I have checked the spark plugs ,plugs are in decent condition and there is no oil there.Engine compression is low and fuel consumption is increased. temperature needle always be at half gauge.
    Tomorrow inshallah its going for complete diagnose and then i will update you brothers whats the problem is?

    A friend owns one, it was a messed up car, bad engine, rust, no suspension, no brakes, nothing electrical worked, etc. He got his engine overhauled from DHA phase II, by some diesel mechanic located next to his residence but that mechanic could never understand the faults. He has already spent somewhere around 50,000 bucks on the overhaul and the little faults that appeared after the overhaul. It still does not run perfect. Only runs fine on CNG and very rich, jerky and unresponsive when turned to petrol. He's gotten crazy with the problems he's facing, though he does agree that he made a mistake tking the car to a diesel mechanic.

    Can you please PM me the details of Mr. Bakhtiar?

    Yes it's a very good engine, have read about it enough to convince the guy to not sell his car for chump change. Instead told him to get it overhauled and slowly build up the car. It pulls great, better than any Khyber or a plain jane Charade. Sounds good too. His mistake was getting it overhauled by a diesel mechanic.

    @Xulfiqar BTW, went to Abdul Hameed & sons, met Afzaal, gem of a person, he gave his regards for you.. and yes, had lots of chae. Closing time he saved the last cup of tea for me, very kind of him.

    I finally convinced him to lower my car a little, at first he was adament that it would get stiff and all that, then after seeing my persistant determination and some buttering, he gave in
