When I start my car it seems like it takes a while for the car to turn over (only a few seconds but longer than i am use to), then when it does turn over there is white/blue smoke that only last for about 10 or 15 seconds then after that it runs fine. I should also say that it only happends when the engine is cold. Not sure what to do, just bought it and wondering what i should do. PLEASE help me out!
On start up, there is white/blue smoke, after that its fine. on 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca

HOW MANY MILES ON IT. THE SMOKE COULD BE A SIGN OF A COUPLE OF THINGS. DOES IT USE ALOT OF WATER OR OIL?

I owned a toyota rav4 that did this ive also worked on a lot of cars. Its usually the valve stem seals. Just leave em. On a higher mileage car its not that big of a deal as long as its not fouling spark plugs.
