Welcome to the Zone Pitbull.

The oil PUMP is fine, but it sounds like you have an oil LEAK somewhere.
Have you located the source of the leak yet?
Which side of the engine is covered in oil?

Also, have you since then confirmed that smoke is coming out of the pipes, or is it simply smoking because oil is dripping onto the headers?

On the left side, the common points for an oil leak are the clutch push rod seal and the countershaft seal.

Have you looked in the air box for excessive oil accumulation?

Is this a '97 TLS?
