I am not that familiar with this motor, but with the symptoms you describe I presume that it is fuel injected. You may have a faulty injector, which is leaking fuel into the cylinder, this fuel will by pass the rings. Washing off the protective oil coating and into the sump, diluting the oil which will give the smoking problem. A fuel system test will show a pressure loss, and a very sooty spark plug will be a good indication as to which cylinder is acting up. Change injector, oil & filter and you should be ok.
