Engines idle goes up and down after warming up and blows blue smoke


If the engine idles for a while then blows blue smoke this is an indication of oil passing the valve stem seals and being burnt in the combustion process. ( When you are at lights and they change and you accelerate away leacing a cloud of blue smoke this is worn valve guides and failed valve stem seals) As for the idle it could be the oxygen sensor is coated with oil and soot and is malfunctioning henace the cpu cannot regulate the fuel setting correctly. Have the valve seals replaced and clean the Oxygen sensor and check for other fault codes

Ready heater sparks and theen just blows smoke


Make sure the fuel is not contaminated,and is k 1 ,if it is diesel fuel in it,and it is not made for diesel ,then that is the problem,also use a anti gel additive for gelling in the fuel,it doesn`t have to be that cool for gelling.
