Sounds like you have a hole in your radiator.as for the smoke it must be steam.
When radiator is hot it will expand when cools of it will contract making it hard to see.

My car keeps heating up and the check gage light comes on


its either a radiator leak, radiator hose leak, or headgasket..

if its a headgasket you would have white/blueish tint smoke coming out, is there any smoke?

the check engine light is basically your throwing a code somewhere in the car.

Take it back to them. Most likely they spilled washer fluid or oil on a part that gets hot. Then when you drove the spill evaporated. They may have checked your antifreeze and improperly tightened the Radiator cap causing a leak.

Observe the temperature gauge for overheating. Some Lube places do more service than oil changes. You need to pressure test the Radiator for leaks. They could have simply overfilled the fluid.

From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.

If your test drive was short, but your drive home is longer, it could be a coolant leak. Coolant creates a thick white smoke when it burns. If it's coming out of the tailpipe, then it must be coming through the engine at some point, possibly from a failing head gasket.

A fairly inexpensive test for this is to drain and flush the radiator, refilling it with water, running the engine to warm it up, then drain and flush again, refilling it with water. Be sure to drain and flush the overflow reservoir as well if you can. And please be careful working with a hot radiator - steam burns skin very easily. This should remove at least 75% of the ethyl glycol antifreeze that causes the smoke.

Now, when you run the car up to temperature, if it still smokes white, but much, much less, then it is in fact coolant leaking into the engine and being vaporized and pushed out through the exhaust. The most likely point of failure is the head gasket - which means a several hundred dollar fix.
