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?

SOURCE: White smoke coming out of the exhaust when starting?

Hello;
Volumes of white smoke is an indication of water in the exhaust. A certain amount of vapor will be present on start up, but if it is different than what has been the norm for this vehicle then a check of the cooling system is in order.

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: 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..

You didn't say what colour the smoke is. I assume it is from the exhaust and is darkgrey/black sooty sort of smoke which along with the engine misfire would indicate faulty diesel injector(s).

Black smoke is excess unburnt fuel. Blue smoke is oil being burned, if blue the valve stem seals may be allowing oil to seep down over night.

Helllo there
Symptom: Gray or blue smoke from the exhaust. You notice gray smoke coming from the exhaust when you start your car. The smoke may or may not disappear after the car is warmed. If it is, it is less noticeable. The smoke may have a bluish tint to it. Possible causes:

  1. The engine's piston rings may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace piston rings. (Generally not a DIY job)
  2. The engine's valve seals may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace valve seals. (Generally not a DIY job)
  3. Damaged or worn valve guides.
    The Fix: Replace valve guides. (Not a DIY job)
Symptom: Engine uses more oil than normal, and there is some smoke from the exhaust. The oil level is low between oil changes. It appears that the oil is being burned by the engine because of the smoke in the exhaust. You may or may not notice the engine doesn't have the same power as it used to.
Possible causes:

  1. The PCV system is not working properly.
    The Fix: Replace PCV valve.
  2. The engine may have mechanical problems.
    The Fix: Check compression to determine engine condition.
  3. The engine's piston rings may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace piston rings. (Generally not a DIY job)
