Hello,
I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,
Shantal

Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,
Hi blue smoke is a good solid sign of engine oil burning .
Most likely cause is the following .
Piston oil rings ,
Valve shaft seals.
Or the engine breather blocked open and causing the oil to get by the breather and into the intake system.
If you have the TD engine have the turbo checked
If you have a Turbo this is also a common issue with the turbo shaft seals failing ..
Still need additional information then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.
