First of all. Has your vehicle over heated by any chance on you? If so, pull your Oil dipstick an see if the oil looks normal or if it looks Milky! Then we can go from there.

That is usually caused by a blown head gasket. 89yota is right about the oil color, if it is milky that is a for sure sign for a head problem, also oil in the radiator is another, you may feel a slight misfire when first starting the engine but will go away in a few seconds and notice steam out the tail pipe that will also go away in a short amount of time, all are signs of head gasket problems.

If you want to nail it down for sure, a shop can run a block check test and that will confirm the problem.

Is the radiator cooling fan coming on ?

I noticed smoke from the tail pipe this morning must be a head gasket. Fan comes on not sure about the oil issue im going to take it to the dealer to confirm if I do an oil change I will get the multi point inspection free 40.00 vs 120.00 I will have my answer.

Only if the oil is milky colored, you can check that on your own by just pulling the oil dipstick and look at the color, or by looking into the radiator cold engine and look for oil floating on top of the coolant.
