Smoking 86 Si

I'm having a problem figuring out why my motor is smoking when it gets the temp up. The smoke seems to be coming from under the exhaust manifold. I had the tranny rebuilt by a shop here in Orlando that I thought was reputable, but after the job they did on my Civic I know they do half assed work. After I picked the Prelude up I made it about halfway home and pulled over because of smoke coming from the engine bay, I discovered a split and leaking power steering hose that was dripping down onto the exhaust so I figured that was the reason. After replacing that I still had smoke coming up and now am afraid to drive it for fear of messing something else up. I thought maybe they had messed up the rear main seal that was replaced while the tranny was out, but the car will smoke even not being driven, just brought up to temp idling in the driveway. The radiator was replaced during the rebuild but I see nothing leaking underneath and it's not losing water or oil that I can find. I'm at a loss and don't want to get rid of the car since it was a great daily till I had the tranny rebuilt. I could go on and on about the **** job the shop did on my other car, but I'm trying to wait till I find out if they half did something on this car and I'll just call the Lawyer and take them to court on both cars. Between the two cars it's approx. 4 grand in work so it isn't cheap. I don't have the cash to have a shop troubleshoot it because I saved for quite awhile to get both done. any Ideas you may have would certainly help, Thank you in advance.
