SOURCE: smoke from the vents after upper heater hose replaced

Smoke through the vents indicates a heater core issue. If you are losing coolant and / or getting coolant inside the car (check the floor boards) this would tend to confirm a heater core. Best of luck to you.

SOURCE: steam coming out of vents and water runnind down inside of dash

Your heater core has corroded through. You need a new heater core. You may be able to get by temporarily, with bypassing the heater core hoses, located in the engine compartment. These hoses carry coolant heated from the engine, to the heater core. You remove the hoses from the core, and put a pipe in the middle, connecting the two hoses together using hose clamps.

Should there be a cool morning, or if you need the defroster, you won't have warm air. Just a temporary fix.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge ram 1500 4x4 vent hose on rear axel

The hose is only an extension to elevate the vent. Trucks have these so they can be braver about crossing axle deep water.. The plastic piece on the end is somewhat of a chk valve so the hose isn't open to dirt and road spray.It should be cliped to the frame to stay elevated.

SOURCE: When I turn my vent selector to defrost on the far

It's normal for the A/C compressor to come on with the defroster to dehumidify the air so the windsheild won't fog up under humid conditions. You can still control the air temp. out the vents with the temp. select switch.

What is the procedure on how to pull out air con vents to have the broken fins repair?


You can't repair the vent opening you must replace the vent register. They are held in by 2 plastic clips that snap in place.

Water coming through air vents


clean out the drain under the windscreen and ensure that the drain hoses down inside the mudguards are not blocked . ON the dash controls close the vent to recirculate the cab air and not allow fresh air into the cab.

Steam coming through heat/cooling vents


You have one of 4 problems, #1 the drain at the bottom of the plenum is clogged (this usually drains out under the car near the fire wall on passenger side if vehicle and is useful primarily during AC use to drain condensed water) #2 your heater core is leaking and requires replacement. #3, the outside air intake venting is not draining properly and allowing rain water and condensation to enter through the intake and into the plenum. #4 in rare cases coolant is leaking past the heater hose clamps at the heater core and allowing coolant to enter the plenum.

You have a leak in your air conditioning compressor Your system works on the reheat principle All air passing through the system is cooled and reheated before it enters the cabin this sould be dehumidified air but it passes through the heater core and sence the air is not dehumidified you are getting condansation as the air flows the heater core that is heated by the engine heat and the water is from condencation because of the leak in the ac compressor The unit is a press fit in the center of it and fials unfortinatly a lot with this disgien of compressor

Sounds like the heater core may have sprung a leak of coolant--although, there should be the sweet smell of antifreeze. If the heater hoses are original, they may be the cause of the leak due to rotted ends. In any case, the heater/air conditioner case will need to be opened, cleaned and repaired. You may need to replace all under-dash vent hoses to get rid of all the smell. Good luck!

Heater blows cold air,thermostat was changed, hose are good what could it be


Could be a blocked heater core (the part inside the dash that the hot water runs thru), or the heater blend door motor not operating (the part that allows the air from the heater into the vents), or a broken blend door shaft, or something similar. Most of these would require a workshop to attend to them, although you could try flushing out the heater core, by removing the heater hoses from the pipes they go onto at the firewall and directing water at a reasonable pressure (not high pressure like a steam cleaner) into one of the pipes to see if you get a whole lot of crud come out. This may or may not fix the problem and I recommend you take it to a garage and if cost is an issue just tell them you want it diagnosed, and to advise on a price to repair. Give them an upper limit on what you expect to pay for diagnosis as well.
