05 kia sorento ex see white smoke burning but not out exhaust and I cant seem to pin point location or what the smell is.

White smoke is burning engine oil.
mostly when Engine oil is changed or topped up
little oil get dropped and when engine heats up. it burns the oil.
but once oil is burnt then no more smoke is there.

unless you have a leak

Would a bad pvc valve cause a 2008 Ford Fusion to smoke when going up hill

not necessarily
the purpose of the PCV valve is to vent the compression gases that by pass the rings into the sump back through the inlet manifold and so have the fumes burnt before going out the exhaust pipe
There fore it stands to reason that if you have worn rings/ broken ring or cylinder scored then there will be excess compression gas to the sump which tends to boil off the oil or actually burn the oil fumes in the sump and this excessive smoke will find its way back into the inlet manifold and if too much ,out the exhaust as smoke
when going up a hill that amounts to extra compression being exerted on the rings and pistons and a larger part of the compression gas into the sump and out the rear as smoke
I suggest that you have a compression test done to gauge the condition of the engine, an oil pressure test done with a mechanical gauge to measure the oil pressure to determine the condition of the bearings as excessive bearing clearance will overload the weak oil rings and that will also cause smoke out the exhaust
you have not mentioned the mileage done by the motor but as it is 2008 model and calculating the average mileage covered for that year vehicle I am thinking that the motor may be a bit worn
however the suggested tests done by an accredited service shop will give fairly good results to determine the next move

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.

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.

Exhaust smoke after sump replacement

It is very possible that there is still unburnt oil on/ in your exauhst and that could cause your blue smoke. Check your dipstick for signs of water or murkiness to make sure that there is nothing else wrong and be sure also to check under your car for any other possible leaks. after parking it overnight, you should be able to see if there is anything leaking a substantial enough amount to cause the burn off you are talking about.
