    Sounds like a failed cylinder head gasket. The burning oil has a blue color. The coolant not always mix with the oil, it depends where the gasket failed. Looks like it only enters into the combustion chamber. A good shop could check it for a head gasket leak. The spark plugs has to be removed and the coolant system has to be pressurized then check the combustion chambers for coolant.
