blue smoke

I have a 1995 F-350 with the 7.3 powerstroke. It has about 180,000 miles on it. When I start it up in the morning it produces a big bluish cloud of smoke with some white mixed in. The white goes away bu the blue tinge remains until it warms up then I do not see anything coming out of the exhaust.

Of course I believe the blue is oil related and the white from excess fuel.

I would ordinarily think that it would be worn rings if the blue smoke is always there but it isn't. If it were a gas engine I would think bad valve stem seals but not sure of the valve arrangement in diesels. Could it be a problem with the turbocharger?

On warm days after sitting most of the day when I re-start there is a minimum of blue. On colder days it lets out another blue/white cloud.

Any ideas?

The truck seems to run good I have had it for more than a year.

Thanks!

Craig

I guess I should have searched the forums first...I see many similar complaints and am guessing it is just the nature of the beast...

If anyone thinks differently, by all means let me know!

Thanks!
