Blue smoke coming from the exhaust is most likey the head gasket. depending how bad it is smoking, the more blue smoke=the worst. turn your car on, and let it run til the blue smoke starts coming out the exhaust. then get a smell of the smoke. it could either smell like oil or antifreeze. either antifreeze or oil could be mixing with your gas due to a cracked or worn head gasket and causing the blue smoke.

I could be wrong but it sounds like a head gasket check oil to see if there is antifreeze of water in it.

well blue smoke is a sighn that you are burning oil either valve seal or rings are wore out or cound also be a leaky head gasket

This cars are notorious oil burners due to poor valve guides in the heads. Easiest solution is to us 100% synthetic oil. Car will still burn oil, but you will not get the blue smoke as synthetic oil burns to an ash and not to a smoke. I have done this with my Lebaron, and it has stopped smoking for 2 years now.

the engine is burning oil, the oil coming out of the exhaust pipe is a serious problem, it could be that the engine needs completely reconditioning or fit a reconditioned engine, you may be able to get an engine from a wrecking yard but it could be almost as bad as the one that you have......hope this helps.......cheers.
