Why does my engine smell of burning rubber after an oil top up?

I have a Chrysler neon LE R Reg 1997, 2.0L SOHC. I topped up the oil level last night (when it was a howling gale!) The wind blew some oil over the engine block (I wiped up what I could get too). Afterwards I started the engine and could smell burning rubber type of smell and saw smoke coming from the back left of my engine bay. Can anyone help me URGENTLY, please?

Hi Clare.
Sounds like some of the spilt oil has got onto the exhaust manifold, a small amount will probably burn it self off fairly quickly. If its a large amount you may need to have the engine area steam cleaned at your local car valetors.
