KNOCKING NOISE AND SMOKE

1999 Pontiac Grand Am

Noises problem
1999 Pontiac Grand Am Front Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles

I have a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE. It makes a knocking noise when you first start it up and the temp. Gauge shoots up and smoke comes up from the oil dipstick shaft. I was wanting to know if this could be the bearings or rod in the oil pan, or the piston, rings, or rods in the motor?
