BUYRNING BLUE SMOKE WHEN STARTING

Engine Mechanical problem

I've been very diligent with scheduled maintenance. Just crossed over the 48,000 free maintenance and now my car is blowing blue smoke when I start it.

I normally only see Mazdas start doing that so early in their life.

Most likely cause is oil leaking past the valve stem seals.
With bad oil wiping rings to be the second option.

Switching brands / types of oil can do it too.
