    Default Oil change plz help

    Hi, I've just had a oil change on my zafira vxr using Castro edge 5-40 fully synthetic and on start up some blue smoke came from the exhaust but there wasn't any before using Castrol magnatec 10-30semi synthetic, I noticed vxrs like fully synthetic so I made the change, any ideas why the car would smoke just from changing oil

    Thanks for your reply, I've not had stem seals done yet, I'd consider doing them but the car only did the smoke from oil change, il take car for a run and see if it clears up, fingers crossed
