Is the Malfunction Indicator Light showing?
Have you checked the fuses?
Blue smoke is oil burning in cylinders or exhaust system and usually is an indication of bad valve seals.

1-You could have a performance issue related to number 2 on your list. This would be oil getting into the combusiton chamber past the rings or valve seals.
Is the check engine light on?

3-Check the power steering fluid level. Also grab the power steering pulley and check for play. It sounds like the power steering pump is failing.

4-The engines in those cars tend to make noise at that milage and if you have a misfire it will only make it worse.

5-Check the fuses.
