Puffs of smoke from passenger fender

Truck is an 08job 1 it has an exhaust leak that is behind turbos..... It recently used antifreeze to drop below the rubber hose in the bottle......I dint notice any extra oil or smoke from tailpipes just low on coolant after weekend of heavy hauling..... 2 times now I have noticed(when coming to a stop) a large puff of smoke coming from passenger fender above the tire area. I thought the brake was hanging up but when I got out to look nothing...... No smoke or smell and rotor ok.... could this all be related and could the smoke be coming from the fender vent that goes to the intake?......

Smoking near the passenger fender is most likely a leaking up-pipe. The coolant loss could be leaking EGR coolers. What color is the smoke?

White smoke. Puffs, when I get out and run over there it's gone...... I added coolant and it looks lower again..... No smoke from tailpipes..... Mechanic said he thinks exhaust leak is in the bunch of pipes coming off the turbos to the down pipe........

the right side up-pipe flex likes to crack. definitely a pain in the *** to change if you don't know what you're doing

as for the coolant loss check your radiator

Not definitive yet but...... The riverside plow frame was wet this am and there was a small puddle on the driveway...... Radiator suspected..... Hopefully the thermostats check out bad so it is covered.......
