A buddy of mine put too much oil in his Toyota truck and now needs to know what to do to get it all out so he does not blow a head gasket. He drove it for about 10 miles and it started smoking. Thats what happens when two people are working on the same car and both do the same job thinking the other one did not put the oil in yet.. Please help

Gotta drain the oil, John. He may be able to use the same oil but, it's recommended to do another oil change.

Just drain out 2 quarts or less and see where he is at. Then add as much as needed. It gets a little messy but I have had to do it before for someone in autoshop a few years back.

You sure he didnt spill some oil onto the engine? That will cause smoke as well.
