every time i start my car from cold i get big clouds of blue smoke, so much ul hav troble to see in front of you.

any sugestions wot it could be?...

blue smoke is a sign that your engine is burning oil, it may be due to a blocked PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) system or the valve seals. The oil could be coming up through the rings. A wet/dry compression test will tell that.
