    Well,
    Where do we start...
    Piston Rings on their way out,
    Breather system blocked somewhere,
    Turbo seals buggered,
    Valve stem oil seals ,
    Or the valve guides are worn.

    Any of these can make for blue smoke as it is burnt oil.
    When it does the smoke may help you as to whats the problem.

    If you can give a few clues as to when it does it...
    When left to tick over for a long time then rev'd
    under full throtle moments
    when you change gear when just pottering around
    all the time???

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    Try and be more specific!

    When does it happen? How long for? Does the car judder very slightly when it happens?

    Have you used any fuel additives? I remember a post a while back where some guys threw some in after getting sold on the marketing "increase your power" blurb, and had smoke coming out for ages.

    Cant remember what his fix was, if he got it fixed?
