Blue smoke from a diesel can be caused by ,

The engine is burning engine oil
•Worn cylinders or piston rings
•Faulty valves or valve stem seals
•Engine over full with engine oil
•Faulty injector pump/lift pump allowing engine oil to be mixed with the diesel
If you have had it scanned and it's showing fault codes , might be better to fix them first if not above faults .
