Car smoking after oil change

I had a friend decide to change his own oil, not knowing anything about his car, he opened up the drain plug he found under the truck and emptied it... then added 5 quarts of oil to the OIL fill in the valve cover.

He'd actually drained his manual transmission, and added another 5 quarts to his crankcase - smoked like a chimney when he fired it up.  Once we dumped all the oil, then refilled both crankcase and transmission, everything was fine.

I'd recommend checking your fluid levels in both the transmission AND the crankcase just to make sure that's not the issue.

Eric, Did you just make that up? HahaChuck
