1991 535i smoking under the car

My car runs and drives smooth now but there's this white, foul smelling smoke coming from (what looks like) the part of the exhaust pipe next to the transmission. All of the heat leaves the car from that spot instead of going to the exhaust pipe. Does anyone know why this is happening? (I've speculated that it may be the catylic converter but I'm not so sure about that )

Sounds like a leak dripping on the catalytic converter. Are any of your fluids low?
