Blue smoke is a sure indication that your cars engine is burning its engine oil. There are several ways the oil can enter the combustion chamber, but the most common ones are
1.burnt out piston rings... these can be checked by performing a compression check on the engine.
2. Leaking Turbo seals. This can be checked by looking into the intake runners after the turbo, If you see any oil at all in the runners then you have a leaking turbo seal.
