What color is the smoke? Blue is oil, grey is transmission fluid, black is fuel, and white is water (steam). HTH. -Jim

If you have high mileage, are seeing blue smoke, and have low compresson on those 2 cylinders, the engine is tired. By the sound of it you're looking at an engine rebuild. Sorry for the bad news! -Jim
