How do i fix blue smoke?

(2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara)
in Olympia, WA on June 16, 2012
when starting up my car it will most of the time puff some obnoxious blue smoke from the tail pipe. it also does this if i hit the gas to hard, to fast. what would most likely need to be replaced to fix this? i know it has to do with an oil leak because my car is leaking oil, just don't know where.

How many miles do you have? I know you don't want to hear this, but if you have an oil leak, chances are that you ran low on oil at some point and damaged the engine, causing the oil burning condition you are experiencing. So, I'm afraid the most likely fix is "new engine." Sorry.

i just bought it on June 11Th with 130,000 miles on it. When i took it in they said they think it could be the valve seals ($2200 fix) or to try a synthetic oil. feedback?
