Piston Ring

So i was on youtube and watching a guy talk about 7.3 problems and he took off the oil cap and said if smoke is coming out prb. got a bad ring or piston. So i did it to mine and she has smoke coming out of it but my motor doesn't seem to be sluggish and only when its cold u'll get a little blue smoke when u get on it but when its warm all u get is alot of black smoke. So maybe there isn't any problem. Seems to run fine got 140k on the motor.... Plus doesn't seem to burn any oil....
