do you mean there is oil leaking from the valve cover???? if so just add oil it shouldnt be leaking that bad from there. In the meantime order a valve cover gasket. if im looking at the pic right.

ja I mean velve cover, but I heard if a air will enter into, it will be bad for engine, so I am afraid to ride so. you know what I mean?

velve cover is a big problem to find here, for sephia 1994, and also it is too exspensive to order it in another country,

you wont harm it at. the air is if any is getting pushed out not sucked in. just make sure the oil level stays good. also clean up what is leaking so it dont start smoking.
The valve cover gasket here in america is like 50 dollars. and preaty easy to do if you have a shop do it, it shouldnt take anymore than an hour to install and cost 1 hr labor...

Thank you man, good advice about cleaning not to have smell, sometimes I it smell like burn oil,
Were are you from? in pic snows very deep, , I want to say that my KIA have very good experience in snow, I was driving it in mountain region from Batumi to Tbilisi, he runs good, 35 sm. snow, no one on the road, just tractors, who were cleaning the road and me . when I stopped , in my villa (Surami) and look on it, he was all in ice, from top to bottom. what about yours?

I live in the state of vermont in the usa.
very snowy winters here. on average we get 100+ inches of snow every year.
It hadles very well in the snow. I buy winter treaded tires to help traction. Although I dont drive this car in the snow much anymore cause the salt they put on the road eats up the paint and makes rust bad.

But if i remember right our us models the emmisions is a little worse than your vehicles more smog..

It funny that you say ppl there are importing us models there.
we are doing the smae here ppl are importing japaneese vehicles that we dont get here like the nissan skyline.

we dont have any of the oils you mentioned. we have mobil1, castrol, penzoil and many others. so my recommendation is lookinto all the options and see what suits you best ask around also see what others in you area use.
as for painting it will be waiting until spring.
I will be the painter, and the whole car is getting repainted.
i dunno what color im still deciding.
