Glad to have you here. You got the Hemi so I would suggest you get a catch can from billit technology. It goes in your PCV return vacuum line and prevent the oil mist from being carried to your intake. I suspect this is what is causing your puff of blue smoke on startup.

Thanks I think I'll try that. I'm also going to get the blue smoke on video and take it to the dealer and see what they say. I'll keep you guys posted. Thanks!

What dealership did you buy from? I just bought my R/t from Cerritos Dodge laat week. I don't think I'll be taking mine back there for maintenance or repairs as they don't have great reviews. I have the Hemi and haven't had any 'oil' exhaust upon starting. I would definitely have it looked at

I got mine from Orange Coast in Costa Mesa. The smoke in exhaust happens for me when my suv is on an incline.My drive way has about 15 degree slope but either way I'm going to have it looked at in two weeks.For service I think I'll take it to Orange Coast or McPeek's Dodge of Anaheim.

Let me know how the service is at the one you choose. I'm sure I'll need the recommendation for my servicing.
