Step #1 - Take it to AutoZone and get the codes read
Step #2 - Return to forum with codes

Other ideas - open the hood and look at it. See where the smoke is coming from, look for oil leaks or other leaks. Look at the turbo hoses - turbo to intercooler crossover pipe, crossover to intercooler, intercooler to throttle body - for tears or to see if they are not fully connected.

I would check for your hoses on the intake side/ inter-cooler and piping , may have a huge hole in one,

What does the smell... smell like? The only running issue with fluids, with the oil light off , I would think of gas

what color is the smoke.. if it's thick white smoke you may need to check out your head gasket.. if it is white.. check your coolant to see if there is oil mixed in with it..

check for a vacuum leak, and also if youre running no CEL, then check to see if the bulb is burned out in the CEL spot, lol, maybe it was removed from a previous owner?

yeah ill probably check for vacuum leak but the cel light works cuz when i turn on the car the cel turns on with the other lights ..

yeah its thick white..

is your coolant level going down fast?? is it just a little bit of white smoke or is it a cloud of smoke? if yes to one or both of the questions then my first assumption would be a head gasket.. second would be a cracked block... for your sake i hope im wrong.. [;)]
