If the motor's running way rich, your eyes will sting and tear up while you at a stand still. If the engine is using oil, the oil level will go down noticably between gas fill ups and the blewish smoke will, well, smell like oil! Your PCV valve could be clogged causing oil (blow-by) to sneak past the rings. The oil pan could be overfilled causing the crankshaft to overly mist the oil in the crankcase and saturate the cylinders. I can't think of anything else right now but like everyone's saying, give us some more info to go on. Good luck
