    If oil drain to return oil from the head to oil pan were blocked the oil would seep down the valve stems at engine rest causing clouds of blue smoke at start up. Does the engine burn oil? Is the tail pipe showing signs of oil or do you see oil smoke on acceleration or after prolonged engine idle? Perhaps have a cylinder leakage test done and replace the PCV valve.
