All the blue smoke sounds like the valve guides and seals are bad. Also the rings could be posing an issue. Usually when the car sits all night the oil seeps down the guides ono the valves and when you start the car the oil burns off. Try a thicker oil. 20/50 would be a good start. Thinner oil like 5/30 usually is to thin at this point. In the summer time oil breaks down faster and the viscosity allows for nore oil leaks and burning of oil. Thicker oil helps slow the problem. Good luck.

Usually the valve cover seals are bad. There is a seal on the valve cover for each sparkplug tube. Check the seals. If they are bad than there will be oil on the spark plugs.
If there is oil on the spark plug electrode than probably valve guides going bad.

Changed the spark plugs and the old ones were covered in oil


i'm guessing that your car is a 4-cylinder. this is common for inline 4-cylinder engines. since the spark plug holes usually go through the valve cover, the valve cover gasket will leak and collect in the spark plug holes. to fix this you will have to replace the valve cover gasket.

Oil around spark plugs on 1992 honda accord


Yes the oil can cause the car to lose spark, the oil leak could be caused by the valve cover gaskets around the spark openings, but 9 times out of 10 it is the spark plug tube "O" rings. The top of the valve train comes off of the head, the "O" rings are between the two halves, that will fix the oil leak.
