Also get rid of the liquid under the battery tray before the battery shorts out and your car burns to the ground

Those lubricants are why it’s critical to flush (or at the very least drain and refill) your coolant system at the manufacturer recommended interval. Not only will the coolant lose its ability to absorb and transfer heat away from the engine like it’s supposed to (you’ll notice your cabin heater doesn’t work as well as it once did too), it could lead to a much more costly repair of a new water pump and/or a new engine entirely.

Even if it looks like it's dried/evaporated it could still smoke. There's chemicals in coolant that act as lubricant for the water pump, as well as the Ethylene Glycol which is the antifreeze component of coolant and leaves an oily residue when it dries. The latter is what’s causing the smoke.
