Blue exhaust smoke is not a sign that the valves are the only thing in need of attention. If the rings are shot, you can get blue smoke, as you also can anytime there is an abundance of oil being drawn into the engine to be burned--- like through a defunct pcv valve. An excess amount of oil in the crankcase can also flood the cylinder walls and cause this, usually when the overfill is in excess of 1qt. jb So do a compression test to see if the compression is equal (+/-10%)in all four cylinders and pull the PVC valve and ascertain it is operating properly or replace same.

Why is there still smoke coming out a candle after it is gone out?

When a candle "goes out" the burning of the wax has stopped, but there is still some burning of the wick material. Typically this burning is less intense and less "clean" than the burning of the wax and gives off more smoke. Once the wick stops burning, there should not be any more smoke.

Simply, if something has physically changed it is still the same just with a new shape or color. A folded newspaper is an example of a physical change, but a burning newspaper would be a chemical change.
