HYUNDAI LANTRA ON STAR PROBLEM

1998 Hyundai Lantra • 220,000 miles

The car, Sportswagon, blew lots of smoke from exhaust on start up. The valve stem seals have been changed, but it still blows to much smoke on start up. A compression check has been done recording 200psi/cylinder. Any suggestions as to where the oil is coming from into cylinders.

Even thought the seals are new, it could be the valve guides that are worn. No seals in the world will fix bad guides

Thank you, that`s the way I was thinking. I changed the seals without removing the cylinder head. Is this a common fault with Lantra`s, because it runs well when warmed up.
