did you replase the plugs too?
Maybe you had a cylinder that was burning oil, but not fireing,and now that it is firing, it is burning oil?

just a thought.

well the smoke is a dark grey color and does have a strong smell but not one i can pinpoint all the spark plugs and wires have been checked so i know there on right we found a problemb with a seal on the valve cover and oil was leaking out but a friend of mine said that it wouldnt be smoking because of that leak can you give me your input on that

What Engine are we talking about?
Gray smoke is oil burning. I assume it's coming out of your tail pipe? Did you try to rev the engine with the wires wrong?
What exactly do you mean by "it almost blew up"? What exactly happened?
If so, pull your plugs one at a time and check the condition of each. You'll be able to tell easily if a cylinder (or more) is burning oil to that extent. Let us know what you find.
