    Default Astra vxr blue smoke

    Just noticed the other day when I was sitting at a set of lights that when I pulled away I noticed a bit of blue smoke in the mirror :/

    I've sat and watched it idle and there seems to be no smoke but if I give it a little rev I get a small puff of the blue smoke, doesn't seem to be drinking any oil either :/I am running a full 76mm cobrasport system so I don't know if that has anything to do with it....should I be worried??

    I'm not sure about the blue smoke? is your coolant blue by any chance? maybe your head gasket has gone and coolant is getting into the cylinders, I had this issue and I was getting loads of white smoke when I revved it

    Blue smoke is burning oil, highly likely it's the turbo or even valve stem seals are both common

    This will sound daft but I got some blueish smoke from mine after I washed it and let it run a little, just burning of the water in the exhaust lol
