Unhappy Coolant Leaking

Hello

I had just recently changed radiator out for a nice Aluminum one. The reason I did was that my OEM finally broke and This was a good time to upgrade.

After installing the new Radiator. bled the system. everything seemed to be okay. until, yesterday. As i was driving I got on the gas a little bit. After I Stopped, I could see a lot of smoke come from my right side of the car. When I opened the hood. It Smelled like Coolant. Now It keeps smoking when ever I drive. I cannot seem to find the leak. I though it was the coolant left from the old OEM that was going everywhere. So I went to a car wash place and pressure washed the inside of my engine cell to clean off all the coolant left behind. this morning it did the same thing and i still cannot find the leak. please help me trouble shoot this. I really don't feel like going to a shop if it is something easy to fix. As soon as I can take picture of my engine cell I will post it. Thanks for your Help !!!

So, I found it!! It was the top hose that was loose on the engine. The RAD is fine and everything is “A” okay. Now, for the next mod!! Thanks again for everyone’s help
