SOURCE: flashing security light
if ur key has the security chip in it, it possible that ur ignition switch isnt reading that chip right away. i mean as long as u can get ur car started try and not get too worried about it. it is possible that ur ignition might be goin bad so try to keep an eye on it and if it starts to get worse take it in.

if you had an oil change and oil got into the frame the fan could be blowing that back on the engine and that is what could be causing this smoke also check out the drive belt

You changed 6 coils, but you didn't change spark plugs? The new coils give strong spark to burn off resisdues from your old plugs plus what ever left inside the combustion due to bad old coils causing smoke and bad ordor. Change all new spark plugs so you can have good ignition to burn off all junks inside combustion chambers. Smokes are at the beginning, but it will go away after less than 10 minutes.
If it is not going away you may have other problemS:
Rich mixture causing engine check light come on.
Check if engine oil level.
Check if your coolant level.
Open the oil cap to see if you have milky stuff. If there is milky stuff then you have bad head gasket.
Let me know what is coming out so others can learn from your experience. Good luck.
