The rings on the pistons are probably shot. Oil is leaking into the combustion chamber and burning up with the fuel, this is the cause of the smoke and the reason it's using oil.
Get it to a professional mechanic as this is not something to attempt at home. Hope that helps!

Land rover smokes bad for a while when first started at about 2000 revs when holding back down hill

Engine valve oil seals might be worn! Allowing oil to seep into cylinders and burn when first started causing the smoke! Is it blue smoke?

I changed my engine block and replaced the rings and bearings but the car is smoking and using oil

  • Smoke and abnormal oil use means the car is burning oil.

    If you get smoke when accelerating hard (eg from rest or in high gear when overtaking) it means the oil is getting past the piston rings which indicates worn bores, pistons and/or piston rings.

    If the smoke appears after an over-run* it points to worn valve guides, valves or faulty valve stem seals.

    *over run = for example when you descend a hill in gear but with foot off the accelerator. The engine is acting as a kind of brake. The smoke billows out when you accelerate.

Smokes on start up

Smokes blue on cold startup = leaking valve seals, which really don't affect drivability if it stops 1-2 seconds after startup. To fix you need new valve seals/heads rebuilt.

If it smokes while under load, then the rings are worn, letting oil seep past the rings into the compustion chamber.

Have you let this car run low on oil? Leaking valve seals usually present themselves if the car has been sitting a while, drying out the seals/cracking them. Worn rings should only present themselves after very very high milage, such as 300,000 miles or more. Somebody has not changed the oil on a regular basis, or just never changed the oil, or only changed the oil like every 20,000 miles.

To bring your engine back to normal, you will have to overhaul the engine and have the heads rebuilt as well.

Engine drinks a lot of oil

The piston rings are worn out and there is no other solution but to replace it.
Do you see oil deposits in the EGR valve or rubber hoses?
If yes, than it's worn valves as well allows to 'blow' the oil into the system. Not familiar as how that model works but if you see no smoke, than it dumps the collected oil somewhere.
Check hoses for oil and underside of car.

Smoking skyhawk

If the smell of the white smoke is sweet, it is coolant and most likely a head gasket failure.
