Hi there,

If the smoke is bluish, it will be oil smoke, and you will have a problem with rings, or valve stem seals & valve guides, Stem seals & guides will tend to only smoke first thing in the morning or when the engine has had a chance to cool. And it will clear quickly, rings will smoke more often when the engine is warm and will do it under most driving conditions, what are your symptoms?

Hi there,

If it was a head gasket problem you would get far more coolant leaking and this will be whitish smoke, also overheating, I would be thinking more rings.
