help! coolant leak/smoking (with pic)

so i got my car back from the shop (finally) but noticed that a few things need to be done. I need to repair the clutch master cynlinder, as its leaking a tiny amount of fluid being the clutch pedal. I found a master cylinder repair kit that included the piston and seals, so that should fix it.

However, another problem has sprung. after driving, i notice smoke coming out of the engine bay. It looks like its coming from the exhaust siide of the turbo, but i think its dur to a coolant leak. The charcoal canister (at least i think it is) is seems to leak coolant out of the line marked "purge" My engine temp isnt fluctuating or running too hot, but after driving, i see a bit of collant on the top of the rim of the charcoal canister. I can smell the smoke, and see it after the car is off (and i do leave the car on idle for a few minutes to cool down after driving) my question is, is this normal?? if not, how can i fix it?

thanks!

Edit:

Here's a picture of it. I think its the Collant line that goes from the Charcoal canister that's labelled "To Tank". I think it's leaking from a spot off the firewall. her's a pic:



If this is in fact the leaky part, what is it called? also, how much does it run? i hope its cheap, i just got this car out of the shop...

also the coolant hoses near the back of the head. The 90' one, and the 2 heater hoses around there are common. Coolant can blow everywhere while you're driving

i would replace those (2) 3/4" coolant lines attached to the heater first thing first.

Both of mine went bad and it leaked everywhere. Without taking the 3/4" hose out, i coudln't even tell if the hose are bad or not.

Also, it's a good preventative maintenance to replace those 2 hose anyway because they're old as hell and very cheap to replace.

Also in the picture. where you pointed out "leaky line" that's the fuel tank fume line. it doesn't have any coolant in it.

I'd say that it's the 3/4" coolant line right next to it it's leaking and cause the coolant to run down to the charcoal canister.

these are the 2 hose.


You can just go to autozone and ask for about 3 feet of 3/4" heater hose.


You can cut them up to the length you wnat and install it yourself. Don't have to go to dealer.

just drive to autozone, and pull off that small hose. There's nothing in there that's going to hurt. Then take it in there, and tell them you need some of this. They'll be able to help out, but it's really not needed. Hell, I got bored one day and ripped the charcoal canister and all that extra stuff out, it's just parts of the egr system. Plus, with it gone, you've got a much better angle on anything back in that corner, i.e., the two coolant hoses, DP, turbo, etc. etc...
