Hi there, the blue smoke on start up is usually vale stem seal, what is the grade of oil used and is it a synth oil?

Thanks for getting back to me the oil is Castrol Magnatec 10w-40 synth recommend by the VW dealer - would a Nulon addative be recommended?

The oil is by passing seals and also possibly rings, no amount of cure all in a can will fix this, it may slow it down for a bit, but thats all.

Hi Thanks again, I could not afford the engine strip down! Would a long drive free up the engine e.G 200km plus.

No this will not work, the problem is that you will have worn components, the only thing that may help a little is change to a 20 W mineral oil, this is thicker and less prone to leak past seals, not a cure, but it may help slow the burning down.
