Vehicle eats oil.....no leaks visible. Consumes oil 3 quarts per 1500 miles. At
start up a big plume of blue smoke comes from the exhaust.Engine light
comes on and blinks most times and sometimes will stay solid then after a
couple of start ups the Engine light goes off.

Blue smoke out the exhaust means the valve seals and or rings are shot. How many miles on the engine? Since the CEL was on, you can scan for the code or codes, they will be stored in memory.
