If it only does it at start up, the valve stem guides need to be replaced. (Head job)

changing the oil won't help with the burning. Valve seals, stem guides or worn piston rings. So engine work will need to be done, sometime a newer/used engine is more cost effective due to labor costs.

If there is a sweet smell from the smoke coming out of your tail pipe, then your water anti freeze is already getting mixed inside the engine and you will need a new used engine. Before repairing see if the car is worth putting money into, otherwise it would be a money pit and surprising aggravations not worth wasting a penny on.

A engine will cost $1,000.00 to 1,500.00 then the labor to put in in should be another say $1,500.00 to $2,000.00. so if you need a new engine I would not do it, the car is 16 years old...
