blue smoke

one of my cars (96 voyager) belches blue smoke after idling even for a short time. I know it's oil being burned--but what is most likely causing it?

probably valve guides and seals is it a 3.0 they commonly have this problem but they still seem to last a long time puffing blue smoke all the way.

Yes, valve guides are the most common cause. The 3.0 is a notorious oil burner and always was.

It will have to be fixed. In most states, you cannot pass the emission inspection if it's burning oil like that.

I have same problem - 96 3.0 Voyager. Just barely passed emmisions test in December (I believe it was 75ppm - with 90 as max). Have you had it looked at or repaired yet? Just wondering.
