Default just an oil change and now smoking???

just did an oil change on my 2000 t6 s80 and now after it is running for a while, only while it is sitting still it burns oil. i think i could have over filled the oil just a tad. will this cause it to burn oil? or is this a sign of piston blow by? i used mobil 1 synthetic 10w30. it is different than the last oil i used.. could this be the problem???

I'm fairly sure that its not the oil thats causing the problem, its generally agreed that Mobil 1 is one of the best syn oils on the market..
I would check out the dipstick to see quite how much extra oil you put, and if its over the full mark, drain it to a more reasonable level..

Check the vent system very common to clog and cause car to smoke.

Did you clean the Bango fitting that screws to the intake? Was the small hose clear?

yes it was.. all squeaky clean. i did take it to the shop today to replace a bulb, install post cat oxygen sensor extenders and found that i was over a half a quart of oil over.. so i drained it and got it to level. havent noticed burning oil since but havent driven much either....
