Today I noticed that I had no coolant in my reservoir. Then I noticed smoke coming from center rear of the engine. When I looked coolant was dripping down onto my turbo. Is this a gasket or something simple ?

Sounds like a hose. Did your car alert you of low coolant? These things usually go bonkers if it gets below the sensor.

Yes it did, I noticed when I had my heat on I smelled a little bit of antifreeze. I saw a previous post about this issue I'm hoping that's only that one little part and nothing have to do with my turbo or another gasket.
