When coolant leaks on a hot engine it produces quite a bit of steam, and it looks like smoke. Make sure you aren't leaking coolant somewhere and if you are, take care of the problem before the engine is destroyed. It's usually a radiator hose or heater hose, but whatever you do, take care of the problem before driving it again.

I had the same problem with mine and I've heard of this being sort of persistent with a lot of these cars - the problem lies in the water pump. It's prone to developing a leak which can throw out your coolant at a pretty fast rate. After replacing my water pump, the problem was completely solved, so maybe look into having your pump looked at.

Why does a 22 hp Briggs stratton engine smoke when started just bought the tractor?

if it smokes just when started and then quits smoking, it may have to much oil in it, check oil level, if it keeps on smoking then you have a ring problem what TYPE of oil you have in it, When they are shipped there is oil injected into the bores through the spark plug holes, this will burn off for a while, so if it's new then it's no problem.
