smoke...

OK , the thing that I dont like to see happened...
wife driving our 996 , 1999.
Started it , I was standing a short distance away...
to my horror and shock a cloud of blue smoke came out.
Not much , but clearly blue smoke.
And only for a short while , then gone.
Is this also normal with these cars? Even with more modern engines and relatively low mileage , mine is driven less then 3o k miles.
Naturally I know the older 911 , many of those puff out blue smoke on start up , but 996 too ?
Or am I worrying too much absolutely nothing?

Worrying about nothing. Completely normal.

yep..one thing that helps though.. is if you let it idle for a minute or two when you arrive, then shut it down. Give the oil a chance to get back in the tank.

If things get worse...

You should know that the Oil/Air Separators on naturally aspirated 996's like to fail. When this happens, after a stint of aggressive driving usually, oil will find its way into the intake. 996's have quite a bit of oil in them and little room in the crankcase to breathe. I have first hand experience with the problem and the fix. Just thought I'd plant that seed.
