Question about 1988 Mazda B2200
I had the same thing to happen, White smoke is water, Blue is oil.
Sounds To me like you have a blown head gasket. Make sure to check your Radiator's water levle.

I know this is an old post but just for the new ppl looking at it for answer. the problem is the value gudie seals it is a $15 part that can trun in to a $100 job if you dont know what your doing. see them seals mess up and leak oil on top of the piston after you shut the truck off and if it is bad enough it will leak oil on the piston all the time. just remember mazda are know for smoking and its all cause of the value guide seals. hope this helps.

I have seen this problem before, It might be the valve stem seals. They are made out of rubber and have a tendency to wear out.

Smell your exhaust.. Not too much though ;) If it is sweet smelling its coolant. If not chck that oil. The PCV is a good idea. One time I seen the oil coming back through the vacuum line from the automatic tranny (Chevy mind you but desperate times call for desperate measures).

White smoke is usually oil...sounds like the engine is burning oil thru the pcv system. Somehow oil is getting sucked backed down the intake and getting used again. Try changing the pcv valve on top or near the valve cover. It usually has a tube going to the carb base. Remember, all engines draw air in like a vacuum.....find your oil leak, and you will cure your smoke prob. Good luck.
