If the smoke is white, or steam it is water. you might have cracked the head or warped it. Did you get it looked at before you put the new gasket on? If the smoke is black then it is oil. Do a compression check and see if you don't have a bad cylinder. They should all be about the same give or take 5 lbs.

Your valve stem seals on the valves inside the head are not sealing and oil is leaking past them. That oil falls inot the cylinder of each piston and when the car is started it is burning that off. Replacing the seals are cheap, but the valve springs and valve keepers have to come off to replace them. Also that's a good time to replace the valve cover gasket.

state what color the smoke is. White smoke is antifreeze. Gray smoke is fuel, and black smoke is oil. Also have the computer scanned so you know why the light is on.

You need to replace your piston rings. Blow-by gases from the crankcase goes back with carryover oil to the combustion chamber through the PCV valve that's why you are burning oil and producing bluish smoke. Check if there's oil in the intake manifold.
