I OWN A 1996 NISSAN QUEST GXE THAT'S BLOWING BLUE SMOKE FRONT FRONT DRIVER SIDE TIRE AND I CAN SMELL ANTI FREEZE INSIDE.. I JUST BOUGHT VEHICLE AS A COMMUTER.


Sounds expensive. Blue smoke usually means oil in the combustion chambers, from worn out rings. Anti-freeze inside means leaking hoses or heater core. Not sure where the driver-side tire comes into this, unless that is where the smoke is coming from, in which case that likely a problem with a seized brake caliper.

Brake pedal just started needing to be pumped to engage and smoke coming from behind the back drivers side tire


I have the same truck! You could have a leaking wheel cylinder. Look at the brake drum on the driver rear and see if its wet. also check your brake fluid level. If you are leaking you will be low.
Wheel cyl's are not super hard to do, just make sure you do everything and both sides. also do one side at a time so you can use the other side for reference when putting it all back together.

There is smoke coming out from below the shifter inside the car. from right underneath the center console by my right knee while driving.


check your exaust first to see if there any holes that is could be coming out of and going into the shifter and if there arent any you may have a gasket leaking throughing oil onto your exaust causing the smoke

1996 Beretta Z26 Antifreeze Leak


You should run the engine and watch it to see if you can see where the leak is coming from, it is most likely coming from a hose or the water pump.

2000 Jetta is Leaking antifreeze and smoking


I think you mean you saw water vapor (some call it steam) not smoke.

You probably have a hose leaking (badly). If it's not a hose, your water pump shaft seal is probably kaput.

Smoke coming from vents smells like antifreeze


Your heater core under the dash usually on the right side is leaking,unless your a mechanic? Take it to one.

Leaking antifreeze


you need a water pump. water pump is inside the timing chain area/internal. the coolant is leaking out of a small hole behind the a/c compressor. water pump WILL fix it.
