If this just happened after an oil change more that likely the tech spilled oil down the side of the motor, it should burn off in acouple days.

SOURCE: Smoke when braking!

Is this smoke or steam if it disapates quickly it is steam (which means you either have a water leak or are overheating) if it is smoke it will hang in the air much longer this could be something as simple as a valve cover leaking, a brake line leaking and hitting your exhaust manifold

Smoke under hood from drivers side

Possible spilt oil on exhaust manifold. Open hood, check oil level , make sure its full and take vehicle back to where you had the oil change done and have them recheck everything to make sure all is tight . And ask them to please clean any mess or spill they may have caused.

Heard a grinding sound under hood. Car then died.

So does the a/c still work, maybe your compressor is bad? Top off your oil and run the engine and see if you can find out where the oil came from?

Under the hood smokes

the smoke may be just residual oil burning off.. some vehicles it is almost impossible to clean up all excess oil that spills on the vehicle when changeing the oil.. try driveing it . it should burn off in a day or so.. also check it and make sure its not leaking... if u feel that its not just a leak or excess oil.. take it back to the place u changed the oil and have them recheck it as a precaution.

Smoke from engine

I took my slk into the shop for its 12 month check and oil change. It is about a ten-minute drive from my house. As the service guy was taking the numbers off the car, I got a whiff of burning oil. I had him stick his nose between the windshield and hood on the driver's side where I have seen smoke in the past. He said, "yup, smells like you have a oil leak somewhere". After an hour, they located a leak at a corner of the valve cover nearest the driver.
