    is the oil smell like transmission fluid?
    theres a diferrent smell between engine oil and transmission oil
    dont drive your car if its leaking bad
    you might probably burnt your transmission if that oils leaking there
    engine too might hydro lock... it is better to fix that imeddiatelly... so you can drive your car again

    The smoking could be some of the oil hitting the exhaust, which could ignite it. If that happens the car could be badly damaged or destroyed by a fire. Have it repaired immeadiately.
