Question about Geo Prizm
After driving for at least 10 minutes then putting the car in park coolant began to leak and spray out of the radiator onto the engine creating steam. This is my first car and am not too sure what's going on.

It could be as simple as a leaking hose, but it may also be a corroded alloy hose fitting nipple.
Get is seen to by a mechanic before it fails completely, causing complete loss of coolant and expensive cooked motor.

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.

The back side of the cylinder head has metal fitting/pipe connected to a hose that goes to the heater system inside the cabin, the hose sometimes cracks off just behind the clamp holding it to the metal fitting/pipe.
