you are a couplke of years late in changing it regularly. It's called "blowby". When the piston rings wear down, combustion gasses leak between the piston and cylinder into the crankcase. Blowby is arguably one of the best indicators of engine maintenance. Old oil picks up small pieces of abrasive materials that wear down the cylinder walls over time.

What is wrong if the place you put oil is smoking and the vacuum line keeps coming off?

It is not unusual for a high mileage vehicle to have 'blowby'. This in itself is not a big thing unless there is very high oil consumption. The line that is attached to the oil cap may be forced off by the pressure of this blow-by. I would try one can of STP in the oil and I bet this will cut the problem in half.This is available in any auto store.

What do you do if you put the wrong oil in your car?

The answer to this depends on what kind of oil you are talking about. If you put a heavier weight oil (like 5 weight) in your car instead of say,30 weight, it will cause your car to act sluggish in the cold weather because the oil is thicker. If you put a lighter weight (30 weight ) in a vehicle that needs a heavier oil, the car will still run but not as well as using the correct type of oil. If you put transmission oil in your car's engine oil pan by mistake; you should empty out the oil pan immediately (when the oil and car are cold) and flush it or refill it with the correct oil as soon as you have realized it was the wrong oil.
