DESCRIPTION Upon landing at recieving facility helipad, crew noticed increased smoke from engine exhaust and pilot noticed fluxuating oil pressures begining during cool down period. The pilot immediately shut down the aircraft and notified maintenence. Initial inspection revealed restricted flow at the engine oil sump return line due to carbon build-up, which caused oil to be forced into the combustion section, increasing the normal level of smoke output from the exhaust. Maintenance serviced the engine and returned the aircraft to service.
