It depends on if you see the antifreeze leaking or it is just disappearing. If it is just disappearing then a bad head gasket or cracked head may be the problem. The smoking could actually be vaporized antifreeze. If that is the case don't run it until you can get it fixed.

Probably a blown head gasket. Get a technician to look at it. If it is, it will be a major ordeal.

It could be caused by a defective pressure cap on the radiator cooling system.

there might be a leak some where in a coolant line. or maybe you have a leak in your radiator.

The wrong anti-freeze could cause the water to freeze in the engine. The wrong anti-freeze could cause abnormal corrosion in the radiator.

Probably a blown head gasket. If the car has an (engine) oil cooler it might be a leak there too.

Seized belt driven accessory; i.e. alternator, a/c compressor, idler pulley, tensioner pulley, water pump, etc.

Lack of antifreeze or wrong mix of antifreeze and water.

Your water pump possible went out so you might want to check the water pump and also check the timing belt

the heater core could be stopped up, or could be low of antifreeze, or the thermostat could be stuck open

it could be leaking from some were above and its driping on the pan causing it to look like its leaking from the pan or if you over tourk the bolts it will warp the pan causing it to leak

It's probably the heater core that's sprung a leak.

Heater hose has a leak, freee plugs expanded in freezing weather because not enough antifreeze , engine block cracked or a blown head gasket.
