When starting toyota fortuner 3.0 liter blowing blue smoke what is causing this

It is oil smoke. The most common causes are worn valve guide seals, a faulty PCV valve, or, worn or broken oil control rings on the pistons. Only 1 or 2 cylinders need be at fault.

Check the PCV valve for fouling. Have a compression test done. If readings are low or irregular, pour a few ccs of engine oil into the suspect cylinders thru the plug holes. If compression readings then improve, it is probably the rings at fault.

Less common causes are worn big end bearings spraying excessive oil up the cylinder walls, or a leak from the head gasket, oil to cylinder.

Start car- blue smoke comes out. Using some oil- not too much. Does it need a valve seal job? Toyota Camry LE 2000 4 cylinder. 200,000 miles on it.

With 200,000 miles, it wouldn't pay to just do the valves
& seals,if that was the only issue

Cylinder are too worn by now

Drive it for a year or so, than replace or rebuild it

#4 cylinder on my 2.2L camry has no compression.

The head gasket might be bad around that cylinder, or the piston rings are worn and not holding the compression.

2000 camry. blown head gasket (daughter drove car

Before attempting any further repairs I would suggest having the block checked for cracks from overheating. Foreign blocks are light but also fragile and crack easily when overheated. You may be able to replace those parts but it depends on how long and severe the car was overheated. Expansion/contraction damage may have already taken place which would require cylinder honing for the new rings.

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.
