Likely at highway speeds you simply can`t see it. This could be valve seals, valve guides or a leak at the intake gaskets. Worse case scenario would be rings.

Overheated engine is never good sign.Look at your spark plugs.Also take a compression test.On the other hand,"A engine that smokes is well lubricated!"
