Check radiator To try and expand on that thought...

That particular part of the engine has a number of places where the engine coolant system come together - lots of joints/seams/hoses, etc...

You're going to have to study the area, bright light comes in handy, to try and "pinpoint" the specific spot the vapor smoke is coming from. And it's going to a small source since it's 'vapor-like'.

Once you can tell exactly where it originates, there'll be plenty of detailed help here - like how to change the radiator, waterpump, thermostat, hoses, etc...
