piston engines also burn smoke when the piston rings are leaking.

Bluish tint or white smoke usually indicates you lost a seal...........not good.
How much smoke?
Sound strange, but does it smell sweet?
Are you loosing any coolant?

It's not that easy................better use advanced search for "bluish smoke" or "smoking" or "coolant seal" or something like that. Don't know that is what you have, but there are some videos on this site showing this issue.

Let's back up a second. I made some assumptions based on what you said so............

Is the bluish or white smoke coming from the exhaust?
If yes, then how does it smell?
Are you loosing coolant?
Have you ever overheated this car?

Never overheated , Smoke smells like 2 stroke motorbike , but coolant always decreases i fill it up every 3 days , never had coolant warning light , could possibly be a leak in radiator
