The smoke coming from the valve cover and dipstick is called blowby. It is combustion gases the have passes by the piston rings . A small amount of blowby is normal on all engines. The PCV system(Positve Crankcase Ventilation)pulls the gases out and directs them back into the egine to be burnt again. I would first check the PCV system to make sure it is working proper. Also a compression test of the engine will tell you which cylinder is not sealing proper. If the compression test is ok, a leak down check of the cylinders will determine if the engine is wore out.

There is a tool available from most auto parts supply outlets, it is a plate that has a compression bolt through it, you slide the plate into the caliper, and tighten the bolt against the piston, then keep turning until the piston is all the way in. These are relatively inexpensive and good to have for next time.
hope this helps.
