CHEVROLET TRAVERSE COOLANT PROBLEM

2010 Chevrolet Traverse • 42,800 miles

Just had an oil change, and a unusual smell comes from the tailpipe and tailpipe a hole lot of smoke, and I put my fingers inside the end and felt around then pulled my fingers out and saw what looked to be oil. Can this be a problem. Was something done wrong.

My 2010 traverse is in the shop now having pistons and rings replaced due to oil consumption. Was using 1 1/2 quarts every 1100 miles. Gm will not eeplave engine until we try this. Check your oil regularly I have been told that they have had to replace engins in 2010 equinoxes for the same issue

My issue started around 60,000 miles and now has 65,000 til I went through all the procedures for gm to see the amount it was using
