You probably have a leaking hose or waterpump leak. When you get steam make sure that there is water in the radiator

Steam slowly coming out of passenger side vent.Smells like antifreeze.dont see nothing leaking.If heating core how hard to replace.


The heater core is located behind the dashboard, on the passenger side. Steam from the vent and an antifreeze smell is a decimate sign that the heater core is leaking and needs replacement.
The procedure for removal and installation varies depending on your make and model, your profile says only "ford cars and trucks" so I can't say off the top of my head if your vehicle is an easy job or a hard one.
A simple instalation would involve removing only an access panel under the dash and maybe the glove box door. Difficult ones can require removal of the entire dashboard.
Look through a repair manual for your make and model (available at almost any parts store) to see how your heater core is accessed and decide if you can do the job yourself. Good luck.

When i start the jimmy i smell antifreeze, is it the heatercore or the waterpump


may be either, Is your passenger floor wet? does the heat work? is there a film on the windows?(these are tell tale signs of a bad heater core) is there steam rising from under the hood? does the temperature rise and fall? is the antifreeze a brown color(sign of broken impeller) or is there a loud bearing noise? (these are signs of a bad waterpump)...are there any other symptoms?

1991 Toyota pick-up while driving began to smell wires burning. When stopped could smell strongly on the passenger side under the hood. Did not see any wires burned, but the gauges on the inside stopped...


Look under the dash on the passenger side and under the hood more closely for burnt wires to the computer. If the computer has burnt wires to the instrument panel, then you found the problem.

95 escort smoke from vents vibration when accelerating why??


The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect.
Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.

Front windsheild is steaming up


If you are talking about steaming up on the inside, you could have a heater core leaking coolant. Check the passenger side front carpet and see if it's wet. A big job to replace.
