Have noticed lately that my bus when i brake and decelerate to stop at lights smokes up quite a bit and drops right off once engine comes down to idle, are the valve guides worn so to speak or is it the valves themselves need re-seating, just done some maitenence and back left spark plug is only one showing any form of build up, tappet clearence is in spec, want to know before i get a mechanic to over charge me . don't know enough yet about my bus to go doing things i am unsure of and the like.. Help before i make a mechanic wealthier , ideas anyone or posts i can look at to fault find, just noticed the kombi kadet part when I posted this, they got that right.
ps it a 1600 cc

Blue smoke usually means oil in cylinder-even very small quantity.
Which engine do you have as this could make a difference with connections etc.?
