Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue
The problem could be your oil pan. I have found that the plug (bolt for oil changes) can become useless when the rubber seal of it becomes brittle. Now if it was the oil that started smoking the smoke you saw would have been blueish grey. Make sure that it wasn't your engine coolant as well which could have very well been overheating in the process.
Have someone check your oil pan for leaks and damages (could be damaged from sharp rocks or hitting obstructions with the underside of the car). Another thing i have had seen is that when an oil change was completed that the mechanic initially loosened the bolts around the oil pan and cought that mistake after the fact yet didn't retighten the bolts. Chances are however you will need to have the underside of the vehicle checked as the damage for that kind of oil release is very likely related to it...
