This is most likely a blown heater core. It's almost sweet smelling, correct? If so, have your mechanic or dealership check it out right away, this will cause a low coolant and possibly an overheating issue.

White smoke from air vents while ac was on,greasy film on window while defrost is on/heater coil?


Yes. The heater core is leaking bad. The white smoke is the coolant and steam. Be sure to add water to the radiator before you burn up the engine.

My 2001 jeep grand cherokee has a dark mist/smoke coming out of the vents, and defroster. But, the heater works fine. What could it be?


DO NOT USE STOP LEAK!!!!!! That stuff has no brain so you cant tell it to plug only specific leaks. It will go for the easiest hole to plug which can be a water port in the cooling jacket for the cyl heads. replace the heater core. Fix it right or bypass but please please please do not use anything that will stop a leak

Smell of burning oil out of heater vents


Have you checked under the hood,Mark? The heater commonly pulls outside air thru the vents and can get air coming up from the engine,so I'd look for a smell outside the car,under the hood.Let me know what you find.
You can alleviate it some by using the recycle air button on your heater,but you need to find the source quickly,so you don't have a fire. don-ohio (:^)
