    I am interested in what you do with your car. I have a 1991 that emits a puff of blue smoke when I start from a stop. Only 70K miles! Mechanic recommended Rislone to clean out the valves and rings so that the rings are not stuck and expand properly. It seems to be helping some, but I am looking at an engine I found in the junkyard with 70k miles on the speedo and CLEAN OIL in the cranckcase
