You have a broken head gasket. While ideaing, theres very minimal friction and presure, however, once you drive it, your adding more of both, causing small amounts of oil to be forced through it, leaking into the exhaust manifold which in turn burns the oil and producing the smoke you see, plus, the buring smell.
