I have a 560sec,itīs blowing great deal of blue smoke after idle or when started,just like the valvesteamseals are badley worn.BUT i read someplace that there could be a vacuumhose somewhere wich sucks oil in the inletmanifold..
Anyone heard this?,i donīt feel like take the heads off and replace the valvesteam seals,specially if it is something else...
most grateful for any suggestions.

check the vacume line coming from the trans modulator .Some times when the modulator is bad it will allow the motor to suck in trans fluid.

Typically if the trans modulator goes, you'll see white smoke. Blue smoke denotes oil and black often means the car is running too rich.

Just my experiences...

Good luck!
