If you are getting excessive smoking from the oil that was spilled then you should have the engine cleaned off. The excessive oil should be removed to prevent the possibility of a fire caused by the oil.
If you’d like a fresh pair of eyes on this, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can help assess the smoke and help you fix it accordingly. Best of luck.
