This happens when the car is cold(ish) and I get caught at a light or something... a couple of minutes of idling, and when I go to accelerate I get a puff of blue smoke out of the exhaust. It will stop within about 1 city block.
Doesn't seem to happen after the car has been running 5-10 minutes and gets fully warm. Oil level is fine, coolant is ok, temp is stable. Haven't noticed any loss of power.
Local shop took a look at it and is guessing valve guide seals or valve stem seal. They also suggested a thicker oil (I just bought the car, not sure what oil it has now).
I did some googling and it seems more likely that it's the PCV valve or busted turbo seal.
Thoughts? Things to check?
I am kind of a noob but I can handle a wrench and I'm learning fast.
Thanks for any help or 2nd opinions.
