A/C Freon R134

edited November -1 in Repair and Maintenance
I just replaced a schader valve on the low side port as it was leaking, however some freon and an oily substance leaked out after I thought it was empty and sprayed over the engine. Will this hurt the engine, cause every time I start it it steams/smokes I'm assuming residue on the engine is steaming, will hurt anything and will it cause a fire? I just want to be sure!
