If it smokes all the time its running then its a piston oil ring or piston on that side if only smokes when you start it then suspect a bad valve seal and or guide on that side.

2009 Jaguar XF - misfires on the drives side bank, smokes uncontrollably when accelerating and restricted performance indicator/check engine light stays on.

And what codes do you get from the car's computer? That's what the "check engine" light is telling you to do.

Smoke is typically a bad sign. Blue smoke is an indication of oil getting into the combustion mix. White smoke is more likely coolant.

Bad news. Depending on what your mileage is, you can have a burnt valve, sticking lifter, bad piston ring all on the right side of the engine. The blue smoke is burning oil. Oil from the crank case is being compressed up into the cylinder and being burned. You will have to get a compression check on that side of the engine. You check the compression one sparkplug at a time while the engine idles. A loss in compression will tell you what cylinder is failing.

Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy
