SOURCE: 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.

1. Obviously there is major leak in the cooling system and you will need to rectify this before you cook your engine.
2. The radiator, all coolant hoses and hose connections need to be checked including the heater hoses. If you cannot locate the source of the leak yourself you will need to take it to a mechanic to check. He will pressure test the system.
Hopefully it is just a perished hose that is letting coolant escape and if so this will not be expensive to fix.
If the radiator has a leak, which is common in older vehicles, you will have to invest in a replacement unit.
If all flexible hoses on the cooling system are old you should, in any event, replace all of them as preventative maintenance.
3. The worst problem you could have is a faulty head gasket which is allowing coolant to escape under pressure into the engine cavities including the cylinders. Check your oil on the dip stick and if you can see a whitish substance in the oil you have coolant leakage. This will be expensive to fix as the head on the engine will need to be removed.
4. You should not be driving the car whilst it is losing coolant so quickly as you are risking very expensive engine damage from overheating.

Does it look like it is coming from behind the pulleys? If so it probably is the water pump. It has a weep hole on it for when the bearings go out. Try tightning all hoseclamps on the hoses. If it overheats real quick then its prob water pump or thermostat
