1992 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles

I have thick blue smoke coming from my tailpipe.I seems to only happen when Im going 50mph or faster. When I stoped to take alook at it, it had black looking water coming out of the tailpipe but when I got home it stoped leaking out of the tailpipe, I left the car runniing for alittle bite but still no more leaking. Can you tell me whats wrong with my van. The oil looks fine alittl dark but thats all. Chould it be that I put to much oil in it?I radiator is fine no foam, clean and full.

You might want to compression test this motor. Blue smoke denotes oil burning. Does not have to be a lot of oil, monitor the level over 1000 miles, any drop in the level?

You will know by checking the DIPSTICK! If you say it only happens over 50 mph, and are now affraid to drive it, go 500 miles and recheck, when I had an oil burner I checked it at ever fillup. Whatever makes you comfotable! Just keep an " EYE" on the oil level!
It's no less safe than it was today!
