check your oil level when car is cold you have 2 marks if your over the second mark you have way to much in other than that piston rings are gone

Going by your previous post where oil level was o.k , sounds like engine knackered .You could have worn pistons ,rings, bearings etc.causing lack of oil pressure , hence oil light on .Could check engine breathing o.k and no build up of crankcase pressure but sounds omninous.Valve stem oil seals can also cause the smoke , but with your other symptons , not hopeful .Best of luck .
