Sounds like a head gasket or other form of coolant getting into a cylinder

I already did and when I start the rover lots of black smoke is coming from tail pipe without stop so I have to shut the engine. I couldn't let it run for more than ten seconds because it fill the whole garage and driveway whit smoke.
:dunno: also they toldme white smoke is head basket.Black smoke is piston rings.

if that much oil is getting into the cylinder to cause that much smoke it would be easy to find by checking the compression in each of the cylinders. around 10 pounds difference or so is fine. one significantly lower will be the culprit. you'll still end up doing at least one head gasket because unless you pull the crank and nobody wants to do that you'll have to pop the piston out the top.
