I have just got my car running agian after a long time of sitting and when i started it up it started smoking alittle bit. So I said ok ill just let the extra oil burn off, but it did'nt! It just kept smoking and smoking. so i took another look and saw that there was a little bit of oil bubbling out of the manifold and I need to know what i should do.

I'm assuming the oil is bubbling out of the exhaust manifold on the right side of the engine?? If so, it looks like you need to replace the exhaust manifold studs. This has happened to me twice...the first time one of the studs fell out squirting oil everywhere, and the second timeall of the nuts fell off...Thankfully!!! this is a cheap reapir, only need the studs and the nuts which you can get from the usual sources, or do like I did and go to a Fastenal store. Check out the FAQ section where there is a write up, order the CORRECT parts and start asking questions from there.

I've become an unwilling expert on this repair...let me know if you have any further questions.
