Bring your car to a reputable auto repair shop and have the mechanic to check the valve stem seal and replaced if necessary. You are lucky if your car is under warranty because you will be covered if not then you are facing a costly repair. Just replacing the valve stem seals usually corrects the problem, however if the problem of blue smoke from exhaust while accelerating still occur then you’ll need a complete valve repair job and as I’ve said it will cost you a lot.
