This was quite normal for the older 2002's, but not for our newer Coupes. The only time you may see a hint of blue would be after coming down a very long hill using a lower gear for compression braking ... but even then, you still shouldn't see anything.

How many miles on your Coupe? This is a sign of bad rings, valve seals, or valve guides. Have a competent service shop check it out. Ask them to do a "leak-down" test on the cylinders. That may help pinpoint the problem.

FYI.
