Wash it down with a degreaser, might speed up the process

Here's what you do.

Start it up and let it run for a while, then shut it off and let the engine cool down completely.

The oil will gel and become sludge, and at that point will cease to smoke as much. You might smell it for a couple of days, but it shouldn't smoke as much, if at all.

Blue smoke = Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. Black smoke = Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich." White Smoke = White smoke is caused by coolant entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. The white smoke is steam. Warning: If you see white smoke, stop driving this car immediately. Severe engine damage will occur if you continue to drive this vehicle. You have severe engine problems as in a blown head gasket or cracked head.
