my 93 eldorado is blowing smoke out of the exhaust. my engine is leaking oil and my gaskets need replaced. could the leaking oil be burning causing the smoke to come out of the exhaust or could this be something totally different?

Is it oil smoke (white), or fuel smoke (black)? An oil leak wouldn't be coming out of the exhaust.

Does it smoke all the time, or just when you first start it up, or under heavy throttle? It could either be oil or coolant smoke. If it's oil, you'd see a drop in your oil level, but you already said that it leaks, so that would be hard to tell. If it is a coolant leak that is burning, you'd see a drop in your coolant level. Have you noticed that?
