Hi thereOk blue smoke is a by product of the engine burning oil (engine oil entering the combustion chamber or exhaust )
The most common cause of this is poor oil quality caused by fuel dilution of the oilThe blue smoke and cooling fan issue will be two seperate issues as the cooling fan has nothing to do with the engine burning oilDoes the fan run constantly even from cold with ignition on
