Smoke

M blowing blue smoke every now and then. Not at start up but when it's warmed up. I hope it's nothing bad, the pipes are dirty maybe it could be all that getting hot?

aounds like you need to quit smoking.

unfortunatly blue smoke is usually a sign of burning oil.

how much oil do you use between oil changes?

you may want to do a compression check to insure your rings are good.

Re: Smoke

A puff of smoke on acceleration and deceleration is sometimes caused by bad valve seals and worn valve stems and guides.

if its valve seals it would need a head job. if its piston rings you in store for a full rebuild.
