Yes this can cause smoking, the oil is coming up into air cleaner (you may need to change the air filter) through the crankcase breather, the solution drain out the excess oil, do this as soon as possible or you may damage the engine, the O2 sensors, and the Catalytic Converter.

Most generally when an engine smokes on start up it is a sign of worn valve guide seals.If this engine has over 150,000 miles on it and/or it has ever been overheated it is very possible that the valve guides themselves may have escessive clearance and are the cause of the valve seal leak.These vehicles have a history of cylinder head problems and if this is determined to be the problem, the only true repair for it is to have the cylinder head rebuilt or replaced.This process can cost upwards of $900.00 to $1,200.00 to do so you might just put up with the problem until it become unbareable. Always be sure to keep the engine oil full and changed on regular interval of 3 mos/ 3,000 miles and use Lucas oil stabilizer to help minimize the oil useage .

If the smoke is whitish in color, and just started doing this suddenly, then most likely you have a leaking head gasket, and it is letting coolant get in your cylinder, and possibly oil into your coolant. I am not sure about the noises you are hearing, but you should have your car checked out as soon as possible, or your engine could be permanently damaged, or it could be already.
