Default a little bluish smoke after she idles for a little

my 03 ram 4.7 has a little blue smoke out the exhust after idling for a bit,, it only smokes when you first gas it then stops untill she sits at an idle again,, it needs to sit at an idle at least five min. or better, i does not smoke any other time, not even in the morning or while driving?? just done a tune-up and the spark plugs look good,, i am thinking maybe PCV valve,??

thanks

Not exactly sure Mark. I had some smoke on my '06 with the 4.7 on a rare occasion like yours, dealership wanted to replace the valve seals and I wanted a HEMI.

that's what i am thinking, i don't think it's something that i should stress about, at 110,000 miles i am going to change the PCV valve, the car fax shows all services were done at ( COURTESY CHRYSLER - JEEP - DODGE ),, dealer,,

thanks
