I drive a 2000 Isuzu Amigo with approximately 85,000 miles on it. A couple of months ago I had a antifreeze leak and eventually blew the head gasket because of the car over heating. Now the head gasket is fixed and it has been running fine. Just recently I have noticed that there has been some small antifreeze leaks under the car after it sits for only an hour or so. Now it is beginning to start smoking under the hood. I believe that the smoke is coming from the oil filter, or somewhere right underneath the oil filter. I have not had any overheating problems, and the car has been running ok. What can be causing these small leaks and smoking.I'm lost please help

Check at the gaskets of all coolant attaching areas to the head, most are just o-ring sealed and these can become pinched on installation and begin leaking at any time. The smoking around the oil filter area makes me suspect the coolant block on the very front left of the engine as you look at the front of the engine. The smoking will just be the leaking coolant being burnt off the engine.
