A leak down test will tell you the condition of your engine, if it is worn out and using oil.
When valve seals are dry and cracked, you will get some blue some on start up, and it will clear up. If you get blue smoke most all of the time, you probably have worn out piston rings. (And much more)

SOURCE: engine burning oil no oil leak little smoke

oil leaks are hard to identify by the blue smoke that you used to see. most of this smoke is burned up by the catalytic converter. at least until all of that oil plugs the converter up. you can tell if your burning oil by removing the spark plugs, and checking their appearance against diagnostic charts redily available on the internet. oil burning will leave a distinctive residue.

Try replacing PCV valve. They will stick open and **** small amounts of oil out and will not be noticeable in exhaust.

What could be the cause of oil burning and excessive smoking?

Sorry to tell you this, but it sounds like they may have put your rings in wrong or one broke right away. If you want to verify which cylinder it is, pull the spark plugs and see which one has oil on it. I suggest you take it back to the place that did overhaul and have done over.

When I bought my fairly used Montero 2000 from the dealer on August 2011 there was a hug white smoke coming out from the tail pipe whenever its started. The smoke gradualy reduced with time, but the engine...

"Hug" white smoke sounds bad. The dealer sold you a lemon. Burning oil is blue/black meaning bad pistons rings or valves. White smoke could be coolant leaking into the cylinders through a cracked head and/or head gasket.
Check you local laws concerning your warranty for used cars and try to return it to the dealer/scammer.

My car oil goes down and smoke from exhaust

It's burning a lot of oil. You'll have to have the engine overhauled to fix it. Did it just start smoking and losing oil? Might be a broken oil ring. It is a bluish smoke out the exhaust? That's a sure sign of oil burning.

Blue smoke is oil and means you have internal engine damage.
White smoke with a sweet smell means you have a blown head gasket (check antifreeze, if it's low that is another sign)
White smoke with no real smell is water in the gas tank. Grab some water remover.
Black smoke is a sign your burning to much gas, you need a tune up.

I have blue smoke is there a inexpience fix or major work

Most likey oil is seeping past the valves, if it only blows out mainly on start up should be fine until starts to smoke all the time (check oil frequetly). Needs to be taken to a shop to be fixed, unless you have good mechanical experiance. Hope this helps.

I seem to be losing oil between oil changes, but none is on the ground where parked. The oil pressure light has not remained on after starting. What could be the problem?

this particular vehicle is known for this problem not knocking your ride but all mitsubishi.s are eventual oil burners the local tv station in my town owns three 01 monteros and all smoke alot when idling for lengthy periods after idling you press accelerator and a huge plume of smoke before coming to me with problem they were talked into replacing valve guides and valve stem seals @ over a thousand dollars in parts and labor did not help at all the most help comes from running 20w50 motor oil with one quart being subsituted with lucas oil stabilizer this helps there vehicle tremendously very little if any smoke now and this was embarassing for them they will be replacing vehicles soon with new ones and will not be purchasing a mitsubishi in fact there sales has slumped in this town to the point the dealership has now closed down and nearest is one hour away
