Usually a blown gasket, usually the head gasket. It creates a

seal between the oil and the combustion chamber. When broken oil

can leak in and you will have smokey exhaust and a dramatic drop in

oil level, or exhaust gas (which includes H2O vapor) can mix with

the oil. This is a very serious problem and can lead to severe

engine damage.
