Hi there,

This is not normal. When you back off the throttle when changing gears the engine is in high vacuum and oil is being drawn into the cylinders through a faulty ring or worn valve guides, you will need to do a comp test and a leak down test to check condition of rings, if the car is blowing blue smoke eon cold start up, the valve guides and stem seals will be suspect.
