the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.

The exhaust system on this vehicle has to be able to flex or it would crack at one of the joints, so it has hangers with rubber bushings to hold it into place and still be able to flex with the engine. Now grant it one of these bushings may have come loose or one of the hangers may have broke but I would be concerned about the thumping of the exhaust against the floor board. This could be caused by a broken motor mount letting the engine flex to much. I would suggest having someone inspect these.

SOURCE: Smoke comes from around engine
If you saw where the oil came out then that is the repair needed. It may not leak enough oil to get to the ground. Engine temp will make the oil leak smoke before it ever hits the ground. It may be valve cover gaskets because when they start to leak the oil gets all over the exhaust manifold and the exhaust manifold runs very hot. Rate if this helps
