More details would be helpful. However if your car is using too much oil it has to be either going on the ground or thru the engine. Please try to clarify and give more details for instance how much oil is it using? Has the car sit for a long time? Is there any sign of oil on the engine itself? Is there any signs of oil underneath the car look well at the underside of the floor board? , EzForJesus

It could be that the piston rings have rubbed the side of the cylinder and caused wear ,you may have to have the engine rebuilt. You can't always see the smoke. It may only smoke when you are traveling at high speeds and disperses in the wind.

What would cause a car to blow blue smoke?

A car blows blue smoke usually when it is burning oil most of the time it is a burnt valve. Which requires pulling the head and machining it followed by reseeding the valve. = blue smoke is caused by oil burning more likely to be worn out valve stem seals than a burnt valve if valve is burnt, you will get backfiring in engine seals just allow oil to run down valve stems into combustion chamber a good mechanic will have a special tool to hold valves in posotion with out removing the heads a lot less costly than removing heads --As I understand it, the blue color is not from burning oil, but from oil failing to burn. The oil forms tiny droplets that make the smoke blue just as the sky or sea. In any case, your main suspects will be valve guide seals, piston rings, and turbocharger.
