What is the mileage of the vehicle?
What grade of engine oil are you using?
Is this automatic or manual transmission?
Do you have coolant losses issues?
With the age, the valve seals should already be worn pretty badly. The exhaust would not show a lot of blue smoke if the catalytic converter is still in good condition, unless the exhaust valve seals are badly worn.
