1988 944S leaking oil


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 turbo s ; Year: 1988; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 45000;

I am seeing smoke coming off the exhaust manifold (there is a small shield above the exhaust manifold 2 inches by 4"in the very front of the car) and there seems to be oil leaking on it. I have no idea where this is coming from. I wrapped a rag around the power steering reservoir and it doesn't seem to be coming from there. After the oil hits the shield it starts to smoke, hence I smell the burning oil and see smoke coming from the hood. This is not a huge amount of smoke but like they say where there's smoke there's fire. So my question is, what could this be coming from? I did take the car in for service and they replaced the power steering bracket and a P/S hose and I told them when I removed the spark plugs there seemed to be a lot of oil on the plugs.. I rarely drive this car, so it sits idle a lot.
