okay, i live in MA, so we get cold spells somtimes... okay... 90% of the time... anyway whenever the car sits for a while, and it's cold, wehn i go to start it it stumbles, and farts out blue smoke.. then it warms up and is fine, also u gotta have ur foot on the gas pedal in order to get the bitch to start, otherwise it doesnt.... any thoughts?

Did you change your oil recently? Could be overfilled and burning it. It could also be the start of a head gasket issue, or the valve seals. If it's a light leak in the gasket on start up, once the car warms up the gasket will expand sealing the leak. I would have it checked before it gets any worse, how many miles on the car?

hows your plugs cap rotor and wires look, you might just need a tune up, it makes a big diffence if youve not done it in a while like 100,000miles
