Yes it sounds like the rod broke but to be sure remove the spark plug and push a straw or something flexible about 2 inches into the cylinder and then turn the engine over by hand to see of the piston is moving.

Using oil...no leakage...no smoking


by recently, do you mean, since it got hot outside? if you're using a multi-vis oil, it gets too thin in hot weather and will "vaporize" and burn, not enough to cause smoking. use a good 30 weight oil. other than that, can't think of anything else that would cause it with no leaking or smoking
