Losing coolant, steam coming out heater vents, checked oil and it isn't milky


You have a crack in the heater core. They are made of plastic. The air to the car comes through the heater core and because the core is cracked you are getting air and steam. The good news is that your head gasket hasn't gone :>)

Smoke coming through air vents


Is it smoke? Or is it steam? If it's really smoke, it will smell like burning wires and you have an electrical short somewhere. You're going to have a fire unless it's fixed.
My guess is that it's probably not smoke or you would have already had a fire.
With that said I'm going to say that it's steam in which case your heater core (which is a small radiator located under the dash) is leaking coolant and the resulting steam is rising through the vents. The steam will have a sort of sweet and yes, a steamy smell to it. It will also leave a funny film from the radiator coolant coating the inside of the windshield.
The heater core should be replaced if my assumptions are correct.

My front defroster is not working at its best, however the back one is working properly. If I add any heat while trying to defrost my windows the problem get worst.


Sounds like the heater core is leaking coolant. If it is leaking it will blow steam out of defrost vents and fog the windshield. Symptoms: low coolant level in radiator, steam coming out vents when engine is warmed up, odor of anti-freeze coming out of vents, wet carpet in floorboard near heater blower motor.
If so, replace heater core.

Antifreeze steam comeing through vents


Your heater core has a leak, it's like a small radiator that heats up and the blower motor blows air thru it to create heat in the car. It is leaking anti freeze into the heater box.

No interior heat in my 2000 daewoo nubira


3 possible issues here,

the first is that your thermostat is stuck open, when this happens the air will barely be warm, luke warm at best, replacing the thermostat will fix this problem

the second, is that you have low coolant levels, when your coolant levels are way low, your heater core doesn't get the proper amount of coolant (if any) and the system blows cold air instead of heated air.

The third and final possibility, is that your heater core has clogged up (usually happens when stop leak or some type of radiator sealant is used) when this happens you can feel warm air when accelerating (test this by gently reving the vehicle and holding the rpm's when it is in park and holding your hands over the defrost vent to check for heat.

If you can tell me what symptom your vehicle is having I can help with instruction on how to fix it thanks cnc_couple@live.com

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.

Warm air blower


Steam coming through the air vents indicates a leak in heater core. The heater core is like a small radiator that is used to heat the inside of your car in the winter time. The blower, blows air through the heater core and into the inside of the vehicle. The steam you are seeing is the hot coolant leaking from the core.
