Question about Volkswagen Jetta
You don't say where the smoke is coming from, but if it's from under the hood you may have spilled some oil on your exhaust manifold when you were refilling the engine. If so and there isn't too much oil on the manifold it will soon burn away. If you look and see a puddle laying in a pocket somewhere along the manifold you can wait until the car cools and wipe the puddle up with paper towels and clean it as best as you can with soap and water. Then rinse it off with a hose. If you find this is the problem be sure and let the car cool down if it's hot because cold water could possibly break the manifold. If it's just warm you'll probably be safe to clean it.

Where is the smoke coming from? If it's not coming out the tailpipe, then most likely you have spilled some oil down on the manifold and this is what you are smelling. As the engine warms up the oil will heat up and smoke...let your car idle with the hood up for 15-20 minutes and see if it will clear up.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

both of the other answers are possibilities, just check both fluid levels. if tranny oil is low but you see no smoke at all under the hood while it is running and you are looking at the motor, it could also be that you have some piston rings not sealing. it will usually result in low oil pressure also.
