Blue smoke is caused by oil. Rich running causes black smoke and will set the check engine light. Rich running (black smoke) on startup could be caused by a leaking injector. The blue smoke puff at startup is likely valve stem seals leaking or a bad crank case vent malfunction and sucking oil into the manifold at high vacuum conditions.

SOURCE: Blue smoke from exhaust on first start up

Blue smoke come from burning oil.  This means that you have an oil leak somewhere that it is getting burned up and exiting the muffler.  First thing I would do would be to check your engine oil level.  After you are sure that it is good, I would suggest taking the vehicle to a mechanic to have them see if they can find where the leak is.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

SOURCE: I have a BMW Z4 2003 2.5 with the exhaust emission

The Exhaust Emission Light can come on if the car is driven slowly over short distances.It will not happen on cars driven at speed. A short trip of ten miles at over 3000 revs should reset the warning light,although it may not go out for a couple of days after you have tried it . Hope this helps and saves a bill at the local dealer. JK

SOURCE: Blue smoke sometimes when I start my 2004 Boxster

Te blue smoke is oil getting into the piston/fire chamber..

If it is only at start-up - it is more than likely the valve seals.. Allot of the time they use plastic ones so therefor it is somewhat common for cars to do this..
If it is not to bad and stops soon after start-up,, its not really a big deal..

IF it is allot - and smokes all the time - it could be that the valve seals need to be replaced OR could be the piston rimgs are shot..

Please dont forget to rate well ;o)

I HAVE THIS PROBLEM WITH MY BMW 530 D A 2004 MODEL AND SOMETIME IN 2013 SEND IT TO BMW TO REPAIR THE EXHAUST EMISSIONS AS THE LIGHT KEEPS COMING UP AND PAYED A FORTUNE AND THE CAR HAS NOT BEEN REPAIRE


It would appear that there is a crack in the exhaust manifold or a faulty manifold gasket. The fault light may be the ECM warning of a "faulty" O2 sensor which is the one after the cat converter as the ECM reads the differences in voltages between the front sensor ( HO2S) and the O2 sensor. That is how it knows of such things as faulty cat converter, manifold leaks ,manifold leaks etc.
If it is not under warranty find an accredited shop that specialises in you make of car for a second opinion, but if still covered by warranty complain very loudly to the manufacturer about the service dealer.

Blue smoke coming from exhaust


Blue smoke coming out of the exhaust indicates that oil is getting into the piston cylinder and being burned along with the gas. This could be a leaking head gasket, worn piston rings, or the wrong weight engine oil (viscosity too low). A leak down test will be needed to diagnose.
Have you checked your engine oil level?

Very difficult to start in the mornings


Hello.

In the first instance. Unhook the air flow sensor and see if this make a difference. If it does your Mass Air flow sensor needs cleaning or replacing.

Try changing your airfilter and Spark plugs. I would also use some heavy duty injuctor cleaner in the fuel.
