Question about 2006 Toyota Camry 2.4
My 2006 Camry has blue and black smoke come out from the exhaust only when starting the engine in the morning. Or after parking for 5-6 hrs. It happens for 3 months. My car has no other problems, runs normal.

It sounds like your valve seals are getting old and are leaking oil into your pistons.As long as it is not using a lot of oil or fouling your spark plugs drive the heck out of it and look the other way when you first crank it up in the morning.
One other problem that will cause this is a cracked head or a leaking head gasket which is getting water on your pistons overnight. Watch for #1 low antifreeze in your radiator #2 higher than normal engine temperatures. This could be a serious problem that could cause expensive damage to your engine if not corrected.

The black smoke is not a problem, it just means that there is a rich gas mixture in the motor to start the car from cold.
This is normal with a cold engine...
Sometimes there is a seeping of oil from old rocker cover gaskets.
If the oil is not running out in a trickle. Don't worry about it...
Wipe the oil away with a rag and see if it comes back soon.
Check the oil level on the dipstick regularly and you should not have any trouble...

It sounds like you have a blown head gasket, or maybe both head gaskets....it has all the symptoms of such.....

Well does it do it when you first start up then goes away? or does it always burn blue smoke? if it does it just when you start it it means you have the possability of having bad valve guide seals, or a bad PCV valve, you can check theat by removing it from the hose and shaking it back and forth it it rattles it may be ok but is cheep enought to fix, also look inside the air cleaner and see if the crank case ventalator is dirty, next would be a top engine clean with GM's Top engine cleaner and to do that I would have to tell you excatly what to do, that costs about 12 dollars but with the fuel the way it is today you could have sticking rings and once it warms up the loosen up and seal, so let me know.
