Blue smoke is usually a sign of oil thats burning. sounds like you need a valve job for it to correct the valves and stop the oild from burning. Either way its most likely going to have to go to a mechanic.

i believe the engine is running too lean as if it was running too rich it would blow black smoke If it was blue smoke it is oil related eg valve stem seals,valve guides and or piston rings all of these things will create blue smoke if one of the above is worn out

95 ford probe car runs ok but blows whitish blue smoke as accelerate


That is probably the head gasket leaking. White smoke is from antifreeze going through the exhaust. The engine compression is pushing the water out of the radiator.

Engines idle goes up and down after warming up and blows blue smoke


If the engine idles for a while then blows blue smoke this is an indication of oil passing the valve stem seals and being burnt in the combustion process. ( When you are at lights and they change and you accelerate away leacing a cloud of blue smoke this is worn valve guides and failed valve stem seals) As for the idle it could be the oxygen sensor is coated with oil and soot and is malfunctioning henace the cpu cannot regulate the fuel setting correctly. Have the valve seals replaced and clean the Oxygen sensor and check for other fault codes

blue smoke would show a lean condition. most likely a fuel line leak between pump and tank not a pressure leak.or a check valve is allowing fuel to run back to the tank

Your car is burning oil. This is most likely due to leaking valve seals. That would explain why the car is losing oil but not coolant.
