I don't think it is coolant, it was smoking so bad it started coming through the vents and I had to role the windows down, it only when I start driving and I assume the engine or motor starts warming up.

Thats what I mean, is there something leaking on the exhaust manifold. Do you see leaks on the ground when the vehicle sits and is cooled off.

Sorry, it took so long for me to get back with you, nothing has leaked on the ground, It does look like dried up oil all over the engine or motor, I'm not to for sure, I can also see smute from the smoke on the motor or engine, but nothing on the ground. Is it possible to catch fire, since it had so much smoke. Thanks

Anything is possible. Does it do it all the time or just once. You can always run it to see where it is coming from. But if it is catching on fire, have something there to put it out just in case and shut it down right away and keep away from your house.

It smokes everytime I drive it, it was only a little smoke from oil leaking on the motor, but it's getting worse now.
