How many miles on are the engine? Blue smoke is and indication of oil bypassing the rings so I would thinking a rebuilt engine is more in order. See head gaskets would allow antifreeze to get in the engine causing more steam then smoke. I would also check the pcv valve just to see if it plugged but still thinking tired engine.

Thanks for your response, I am not sure the miles on the engine will take a look at it.

Can you include a pick of what the problem is? If it is the A/C condensor in the front of the radiator that cools the freon for the A/C all you can do is replace it or unplug the a/c clutch and have no a/c depends on how much you want to spend.
