NISSAN PRESEA BLUE SMOKE PROBLEM

1995 Nissan Presea • 190,000 miles

Hi, this 1500cc car burns a little oil but not excessively.
While driving, every so often it 'misses a few beats' and blows a cloud of blue smoke straight after. What do you think might cause that please? My theory is that one of the oil control rings sometimes temporarily sticks in the groove as I suspect a sudden influx of oil in the cylinder is causing te miss. Could I be right? Thank you!
