It's very likely a valve stem seal that has split. This will allow oil into the cylinder from the crank gallery.
Off with it's head! I'm afraid.
The only other thing it can be is overfueling - but then it will be sputtering and lagging on acceleration.
You can check which cylinder is affected by removing the plugs and looking for the oily one. They will all need replacing really as it's false economy to do just 1. The seals are cheap. I would get a new cambelt fitted at the same time - as it has to come off anyway.
(If this leads to a solution, please take the time to rate as Fixya! - Thank you)

the tapping are the lifts tapping because there is no oil getting to the top of the motor. the blue smoke is the oil burning.could be the head gasket is going bad or the piston rings are done in.

White smoke: White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.
It is also possible to be a engine problem you should immediate visit a car service.
