Having problems with your Mitsubishi Montero Sport ?

I just bought a 1999 mitsubishi sport limited suv, i bought it because of how clean the motor was and it ran very well. It didn't blow out any blue smoke out the tail pipe when I first started it and even took it for a drive, checked the dip stick for oil to before i bought it and it was good, but when i was driving it home i went to pass a person and i looked in my rear view mirror and there was a whole lot of blue happening, so i gunned it again but it didn' t do it, so i just thought oh well

Well if you checked the oil when its hot that would maybe explain the no oil. Did you try to drain the motor first then add new oil. make sure you didnt over fill the engine with oil as this will blow the seals. If you just bought it id take it back. In my state you have 7 days to back out of a contract. But if you added new oil Put cardboard under the vehicle then try to turn it on (only if you didnt overfill it.) then figure out where the leak is coming from. If you can diagnose the leak i can help you from there. If its not a leak and its burning the oil and since you say its blue smoke this is generally a sign of bad pistons or piston rings. If it were thick white youd know it was a headgasket. But id say first look for the leaking oil. If not check the combustion pressure of each cylinder. Find which cylinder is off factory spec and there will most likely lie your problem. here is a video showing a compression test if you dont know how.
Note* that not all of what he says in the video applys to you as he is talking of mg's but this is to show you how to do a compression test if you so choose.
if you need further assistance please let me know. I will be glad to assist you further.
You dont say how many miles its done.
