Ive noticed a light blue smoke from the exhaust and as well as oil from the head gasket?
After I park the car I smell oil now and then?
I have cleaned the head gasket and tighten the bolts, after that I still get the same results.

Could you please assist.

Regards Brandon

Is the smoke from the engine area or the exhaust? Is it the head gasket that is leaking or the valve cover gasket?

Its oil from the top part of the engine that is leaking through, And I smell a slight oil burn as well.

Without being there, I would guess that the problem is a bad valve cover gasket that is leaking oil onto the engine and causing a smell as well as the smoke. If the head gasket was bad, most likely there would be other problems. The valve cover is cheap to replace if you do it yourself.
