I did search and find similar topics, but none of them quite match my problem. I have a stock (nothing at all) 05' WRX with 33,000 miles. I use Mobil 1 5-30 and changed oil at 32,000. My car has never consumed any oil. This past week it's been rather cold around here.
On Tuesday I went to my car to drive to class. (-25F) I started it up and there was a puff of blue smoke that lasted about a second. I nearly **** my pants as it had never ever done this before. I didn't notice any reoccuring smoke that day.
Wednesday (-20 again) I start it again, same thing.
Thursday, today, It's about -5 and my car puffs out the same little cloud of blue smoke. Prior to Tuesday, my car has never burned any oil on startup. Did starting it on that extremely cold day wreak havoc on one of the seals in the motor? Or is it just the current cold spell I'm in. I know I could've waited until it got warmer out to see if it's going to stop, but I just kind of wanted a heads up as to what it could be. Thanks in advance for any help.
