You put wrong type of oil in the engine of your car? What type of wrong oil? Cooking oil instead of engine oil? Can you clarify?

I think you mean two stroke engine oil. If this is what happened, drain the oil and change filter, put half of the engine oil required, run the engine at IDLE until you see that the smoke out of exhaust clears. I would then drain oil and replace filter again. This method solved the problem for my friend. Hope it works for you.
