Blue, or black smoke, oil related. White smoke water / coolant related. First guess head gasket, second guess a crack in block. Course of action? Take an oil sample in to have analyzed, then a wet and dry compression test of all cylinders. Next action will depend on the outcome of the analysis and the wet/dry test.

Why, why, why?
