It depends on the type of "smoke".
1. Blue-Grey smoke is typically particles of unburned oil. If an engine is doing that you should see the engine using oil. Watch the dipstick and don't let the engine run out. Rarely the condition can be caused by a leaky vacuum modulator in the transmission, but that's only for older transmissions that actually have a vacuum modulator. Engines can burn oil when: 1) a valve stem seal fails, resulting in oil being sucked into the intake, 2) piston rings wear, allowing oil to leak past and build up in the combustion chamber, 3) Piston ring grooves build up with sludge and/or carbon, causing the rings to be trapped and not flex to do their job, 4) cracked or broken piston, 5) scored cylinder wall. When an engine burns oil it is almost always caused by poor maintenance.
2. Black smoke is the result of an engine that is getting too much fuel. Typically that is caused by a sticking injector, or in the case of a carburated engine, it can be a choke that is sticking or not adjusted properly.
3. White smoke is usually just steam. When gasoline burns it is changed to carbon dioxide and water vapor. You cannot see the carbon dioxide, but the water vapor cools as it passes through a cool exhaust system (cold winter mornings) and for the first few minutes the cooled water vapor will look like smoke from the vehicle exhaust.
the dirt emitted through the gas being used up by the car for it to accelerate its speed and make it run.

It could be steam from the heater core
Yes, can leak oil causing blue smoke
White smoke is a symptom of a blown head gasket.
could be steam from a leak caused by the accident in the coolant system or smoke from a transmission cooler leak they are both up in the front of the car.
Carbon monoxide produced from the engine can cause health problems like death.
the way to check if your car has head damage is to take off the oil cap and check for water residue because if you have head damage it will mix oil and water and it will cause it to smoke usally a grey smoke or do a comprssion test
The smoke is actually antifreeze mixed with air. The most common cause of this is a leaky heater core.
your car is burning oil.
If you nicked the oil pan it could cause it to smoke from engine area. Is the smoke coming from the exhaust or engine bay? If exhaust, then I highly doubt it was caused by the curb incident.
There is a saying that where there is smoke, there is fire. This means that if there is evidence of something happening, then it is likely that there is a fire, or cause, for it. This saying can be applied to many situations in life. For example, if there is smoke coming from a building, it is likely that there is a fire inside. If there is smoke coming from a car, it is likely that the engine is on fire. In both of these cases, the smoke is evidence of a fire, or cause.
