My reserve tank is right next to the radiator. I'm not sure where the hose for coolant leads but I suppose I could trace it tomorrow after work when I have some time. I can check these clamps tomorrow as well, provided I can find all these things. Are the clamps and hoses near the turbo area (where you specified) or are they down lower in the engine bay?
I took the car back today to have them put er on the lift and they found normal spots where grease or small oil deposits would be. But nothing outta the ordinary. They even brought me back to show me what "normal" looks like. Plus I had no smoke today; perhaps something finally burned off. My mechanic said a single drop of oil could take up to fifteen minutes to burn off; and this was probably residual like others said from when I had my seals redone just last week (but the car still smoked before this).
I will still check into the things you have pointed out. Thanks for all the help as well mjboudreaux77! I'll post back up with the findings soon.
