What kinda oil do you service with?
What's the mileage of the vehicle?
Is the check engine light on...on the dashboard(instrument cluster)?...if 'Yes'..have it scanned...let's just hope your camshaft and valves seals are not damaged already...

The sad news news is that...your engine is getting weak. You need to start thinking of how to replace it...

There's no way your car will emit blue smoke and not burn some oil. You're either not observing the oil level on the dip stick...or what you see ain't a blue smoke.

It should be 5w30...but, I believe the difference is negligible...besides, op said the vehicle doesn't burn oil..meaning the oil level is mostly the same on the dip stick...during oil changes.

I thought bluish smoke is coolant getting into the combustion chamber. Your vehicle uses 1mz with vvti should over around 150 to 170k.

Do you experience cold start and please move to 5w30 or 5w40

Your engine is 1mz and i am certain 5w30 was the recommended oil weight by the manufacturer.

It seems the engine internals cant be lubricated by thin oils, if u dont want to jump to 20w50 straight then try 10 or 15wxx first and monitor oil shortening
