Default Engine light on car smoking then fine again

My engine light came on the other day and the car was smoking under the hood and blowing blue smoke out the back as I drove and I had choppy acceleration too. Then I put in some oil and some stuff that said it fixed leaks and two days later the engine light went off and the car runs normal again. Any ideas what caused this so I can get it fixed better or should I just keep running it?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

How much oil did you have to add to get it up to the "full" mark on the dip-stick? Why do you think you have an engine-oil leak? Does it smoke now, or has that gone away?

I added a quart plus the stop leak stuff that was like half a quart. It said to run the engine for 15 minutes and while it was running there was a steady drip of oil falling on the ground. When I got to work it dripped a bit while I was inside but when I got home it didn't leak anything. It doesn't smoke anymore. This all started after I took it on the highway once I hit like 50 the engine light started flashing

A flashing engine light is usually a misfire, have you serviced the plugs and wires?
