Q: After smoking, car will not hold coolant.

You may have a leak in your radiator. If you poured more coolant into it and it came right back out a leak exists somewhere. If the leak is that fast, it should be obvious to the eye without having to perform a pressure test on the system. Try to determine where the coolant is coming from exactly. If assistance is needed enlist the help of a professional from YourMechanic to inspect and replace your radiator if necessary. The smoke may have been related to the engine or radiator over heating.
