Valve guide seals - large cloud of blue smoke @ startup even

Customer Question

Valve guide seals - large cloud of blue smoke @ startup even when the car has been driven within a few hours (just purchased the car - 155000 miles).
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Toyota. The Toyota Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: After startup don't see blue smoke idssuing from tail pipe.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Probably not but hoping toyota mechanics can do the repair without removing the head (4 cylinder)
JA: Is there anything else the Toyota Mechanic should be aware of about your Toyota?
Customer: New vehicle to me withing 4 days - lengthy service records show oil changes approx. every 7500 - 8000 miles.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Toyota Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
