Hello there, are you sure you haven't put too much oil in?

;-) Where exactly is the smoke coming from?
If you have spilled oil on something that gets hot, you will get smoke until it you clean it off or it burns off.
Just a thought, but you did use the correct oil?

Millers 5w40 nanodrive CFS nt. The guys from Millers say it is suitable for road, just don't attempt long service intervals (longer than a year). It's ester based, cleans the engine, the nanotechnology reduces friction/wear/temperatures.

For women choose Millers 5w30 EE nano - long life, suitable for slow/short runs.

The OEM oils are listed in the Parts forum.
