SOURCE: Smoke comes from around engine
If you saw where the oil came out then that is the repair needed. It may not leak enough oil to get to the ground. Engine temp will make the oil leak smoke before it ever hits the ground. It may be valve cover gaskets because when they start to leak the oil gets all over the exhaust manifold and the exhaust manifold runs very hot. Rate if this helps

Yes , power steering fluid will smoke if it gets on a hot engine, especially on any part of the exhaust system. Barring anything else wrong with the engine such as a coolant leak, and the engine running OK otherwise, I would say that the smoke is from power steering fluid dripping or getting blown on the exhaust by the fan.

You need to adjust the latch itself. Loosen the 3 bolts and move the latch up a quarter inch. Other than that take it to a decent body shop and they will diagnose it for free.

i hope you only see smoke or steam from under the hood and not coming out the tail pipe. if you just see steam from under the hood and the car did not overheat then it is most likely just a coolant leak probably a hose, with a cool engine open the radiator cap and fill with coolant then install cap and start engine stark checking any rubber hoses you can find expesily were any hose touches any thing hard start at the top radiator hose and work your way down until you find the leak, it will most likely be the top hose as we see this rub on a bracket on the top of the bell housing. it is an easy fix, but if the car overheated then that is a whole new problem first you have to determine if it over heated just because it was leaking coolant or if it started leaking coolant because it overheated, about all you can do is fill the radiator and let it run to see if it overheats again if it does suspect a stuck thermostat if not then just repair the leak. if the steam you see is coming from the tail pipe then suspect a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head.....good luck
