Ok the issue that you are describing is oil burning out of the exhaust. This can come from the spark plugs recently being changed, weak piston rings or oil on the exhaust valves. Here is what I would suggest as a first step I would have a engine flush performed then new oil and filter added and see if the issue returns.
