    White smoke= Burning antifreeze=not good...
    Blue smoke= Burning oil = bad rings, bad valve seals.

    If your burning antifreeze thats normaly a blown head gasket or if the coolant and oil are mixing. Sounds like your burning oil thou, I would do the normal tune up and maybe even the "catch can mod", its free and may help a bit. although your problems may be deeper Ie internal failure.
    What weight oil are you putting in there?

    Seafoam will probly make it worse but you can try it if you want, You can purchase from ws6 store or check out instialuniversity.com and they have a write up on how to make your own.
