Default Problem : Car just started pooring out smoke.

Hey guys, my 98 Pontiac Bonneville SE just started this random new thing! It just started pouring smoke while I drive and while its in park. It just started recently, I just put in new spark plug wires along with spark plugs and an oil change. The dad said "the gas is burning" but i have no idea where to start and look for that. All input is needed and appreciated.

Thanks

What color is the smoke? White, blueish, gray? Can you smell anything? Carbon, oil, sweet(coolant)?

Bluish would be oil. Does it smoke all the time or just for a short time after starting the car?

Well i sometimes when i start my car it like almost stalls, like it revs itself from low to high but really quick. Then I save my car by giving it a little gas and that white bluish smoke comes out. Then i dont see it for awhile. And then today, I was working on my car and I dont know why it started doing it but it did. I let it idle for like 10 min and it was just smoking, not tons of it, but a good amount. And I went down the road to see if it would go away, and it still was coming out.

Sounds like you have a valve seal going out.

Under the valve covers. Not to hard if you have the right tools. But pulling the heads is the safest way to do it.
