The first thing I'd do is replace the O2 sensor just because at this point, it's good maintenance. If the problem appears to continue after that you may want to take it to a shop that can check it on a gas analyzer, check fuel pressure and the fuel pressure regulator. Sometimes the regulator diaphragm breaks and fuel is drawn in through the vacuum light that goes to it.

    Some one told me to get a new fuel pressure regulator?

    Don't replace the FPR unless you have fuel coming out of the vacuum fitting. You can pull the vacuum hose off while it's running and have a look. If the diaphragm inside it is ruptured, fuel will dribble out and be drawn into the engine and cause a rich condition. If you don't have fuel appearing at the fitting, chances are the FPR is fine and any further tests would require a pressure gauge but I have never seen a Honda FPR fail and I've been doing this a long, long time.

    Do the maintenance first, replace the O2 sensor.

    Ok so I got the O2 sensor replaced and did a tune up while I was in their.

    New Alternator and AC Belts
    Plugs Wires
    Valve cover gasket
    Oil Pan Gasket
    Oil Filter
    Air filter
    Fuel Filter.

    Put new oil and this power punch treatment the guys at the store said would help seal leaks in the car. Now car fires up just fine but now i have a constant stream of white blueish smoke out of the tail pipe... After car warms up it goes away during idol but gets thick again as you step on the gas peddle

is it a gas engine or a diesel? it could mean two different things depending on the fuel type. black smoke in a diesel is either an air of a fuel problem. in a gas truck there should never be black smoke. it may be a dark blue smoke which is burning oil.

On my 1996 honda accord sometimes it won't start and when I drive it whitesmoke come out the exalts pipe what could be the problem?

The white smoke from the tail pipe, indicates the car is burning coolant. If your car oveheat, or coolant level in the radiator is low, than you have a bad cylinder head gasket. Wait for the engine to cool down, before removing the radiator cap.

1992 honda accord needs oil every 10 minutes of drive time

This is not good . With that much oil in that amount of time.
Unless there is a cloud of smoke so thick coming out of the tail pipe you cannot see through it, There must be an external oil leak. If you look under your Honda and there is oil all over the underside it will be necessary to locate the general area of the leak to pin point the problem area. Starting with the oil filter and drain plug. You may need help with that.
