Question about Cars & Trucks
No, blue smoke is a sign of oil burning in the cylinders. Maybe the piston rings are too worn.

If not fix after tune up... ask the mechanics for the condition of the piston rings? the smoke might be an oil mix up on the fuel due to piston rings problems...
This what had happened to my multicab recenlty...

So upon startup the car has a little smoking going out the tailpipe? Then it goes away after the car warms up a little? You probably have stuck piston rings and are burning oil at first until the car warms up and the rings seal better. What kind of oil are you using? What weight is it? I don't know what is in the car, but if it is conventional oil at 10w-30, try changing it to synthetic and using 5w-30. I don't know what that car comes with from factory or calls for, but in my experience I've stopped oil burning in a piston engine with thinner, synthetic oil. This helps to unstick the rings allowing them to seal better AND the thinner oil doesn't collect on the rings so much, keeping it from burning or going out the tailpipe. Also, synthetic doesn't burn and carbonize like convention oil (dinosaur juice) does.
I really hope I understood your problem and helped you with it. If not, please clarify. Good luck!
