Re: puff blue smoke from exhaust.

Blue generally means you're burning oil...

Re: puff blue smoke from exhaust.

Can the PVC or pcv whatever the valves are called do that when they're bad?

Re: puff blue smoke from exhaust.

Its usually the ring on the piston. If its something to worry about it'll do it again then take it in for warranty. The pcv valve won't let the pressure out and blow out the head gasket if I'm not mistaken. Pcv valve just releases pressure from the head. Thats how it was explained to me on my integra anyway.
