It is a rubber seal that keeps oil from running past valve and into combustion chamber,requires head removal and disassembly.Usually caused by letting oil get low causing seal to dry up and crack.

Blue smoke on deceleration


Blue smoke on decel is due to valve guide wear, you will need the head pulled and the valve guides replaced.

Sounds like you have some valve stem seals or valve guides leaking oil into the combustion chamber.

Why does my honda accord smoke reel bad


This is either worn valve stem seals or worn out oil rings. Have someone follow you if the car smokes more as you release the throttle on deceleration it is most likely valve stem seal if it smokes more on acceleration it is worn oil piston rings. If the smoke is white you have a blown head gasket blue smoke means burning oil, black smoke means too rich (to much gas reaching motor)
