Default blue smoke

I wound out my 2006 roadster last night and when i let off the gas I noticed blue smoke comming from exaust, It does not do it during normal conditions, only when I wind it up ,,,can drive highway speeds all day with no problem..Do anyone think it may be residual oil in the muffler only cpmming out after high volume of air? It has me worried ,,dosnt seem to be using oil or smoke other than a high speed wind..

Is it SMOKE or water vapor?



Years ago, Deb Walker and I were out playing around, her car smoked when she got on it, only thing is - I soon realized that it was not smoke at all, she was blowing water out of the exhaust system.

it seemed like blue smoke,,, I hav had a car with a bad head gasket before and that seemed to be a whiter smoke or steam,, and that never went away... Started and drove it today and seems fine no knocking or rough running..Hopping it was just residuial oil in exaust ,,

Talking Re: blue smoke

Letting off the gas at speed sucks a lot and you could be seeing oil past the rings, though the cats should deal with most of it. woody
