Most likely valve guides are worn. When it sits, the oil drains down from the heads, to the valves and cylinders.

If your using oil noticably,you can add piston ring and cylinder wear to that.

You could do a cylinder leak down test. That will help diagnose the issues, to some extent,if done correctly.

BUT--there is NO fix in a bottle for engine wear.
Get ready to send your love one,at least the engine, to a happier place.

Blowing blue smoke at start up


Hmm, is this an older car? Blue smoke on start-up is usually a sign of a very minor oil leak going past the rings.

I normally do not consider this to be a problem if:
  1. The car has sat for an extended period of time.
  2. It only happens on the initial start up and doesn't do it after sitting for an hour or so.

Wont start.no fuel at fuel rail.has new pump


Pull the fuel pump relay in the engine compartment fuse panel and jumper the normally open contacts ( red line in the picture below )

If this works, you can use the trailer tow adapter battery charge relay as a replacement until you get a new relay. Most auto stores can cross ref the relay.

My 2001 at ~ 35K miles had a bad fuel pump relay, causing a crank no start issue.

Blue smoke is an indication that you are burning oil. This typically happens through the rings on the pistons but can also be caused from valves. If the vehicle is running ok then it is most likely blowing by the rings. The vehicle probably has high miles and the way to stop the blue smoke is replacing the rings which can get very expensive. This does not mean that the vehicle will tear up tomorrow though.

Start with checking the TPS, A bad TPS will cause this type of problem. Make sure that the wire harness is good and if it is, then good chance that the TPS will need to be replaced.

I had a similar problem with my 2003 325iT w/59K miles last week, right after an oil change. It did it more often when starting the car, and once or twice when accelerating. Then it stopped smoking and hasn't in several days. My mechanic neighbor suggested that it may have been too much oil, that has corrected itself by burning off. I hope he's right. I figure the smoke stopping is either a good thing or a really bad thing. No engine warning lights or anything, so I guess all is well.
