heavy smoke

afternoon all,
went to the garage this morning and started the d its been a few weeks since it has been started. anyway when i fired it up it was a fairly heavy blueish exhust coming out of the tail pipe. last summer the check engine light when on and i had a friend check the code and he told me it was the sensor and that it might need to be replaced the one near the bulkhead. could that be what needs to be replaced? i have to get new tags soon and they will do a sniff test and i am sure that it will not pass. what could this be??

thanks!

Blue smoke is oil, how many miles you got? How long was it sitting?

Might just be the PCV valve possibly, or oil might have slowly dripped into the cylinders through bad valve seals.

I'd suggest starting with a good 20 minute drive, then see what it does the next morning. If it does it again, then do a compression test.

Drive it like a nut (shifting at 4000rpm) for a few days, be sure you're flooring it, that should clean everything out.

Change the oil, use engine flush. maybe things gummed up while it was standing, like piston rings.
