Question about Cars & Trucks
Last 2 days "steam" has been coming through my air vents just in the mornings on my way to work, it only lasts a few minutes and its NOT when Im idling just driving around 55-60mph down the highway. First day it happened when I had the ac off but just the fan blowing with the outside air coming in (so I assumed it was bc of that) but today I had the AC running and it did it again. There is not smell to it, What could this be?
Either the ac is not draining onto the ground, or the system is cutting on and off too much, or its not letting in enough fresh air. The fog would be from moisture inside the hvac box.

99% chance it is the blower resister located behind glove box. Squeeze glove box in and pull out.
The resistor is right behind it, dealer part cost less then $20.
Dodge has had this problem for over ten years and until recently did nothing. Now they combine fuse with resistor, suppose that will correct it?

Not sure what the make and model is for this car. But if there is no evident signs of antifreeze leaks, fill cooling system, squeeze top and lower hoses, check to ensure all air is removed, run engine for 15-20 minutes. If you can find a radiator shop have the system and cap pressure tested. Last but not least if the smelling of anti-freeze continue, you probably have a head gasket leaking coolant inside the cylinders. You can also look for a green tint on the spark plug indicating that fluid is being burnt.

that seems to be the problem. If the fan does not turn on when the a/c is turned on it could be a fuse, relay, control box, or just a bad fan. Try connecting the fan directly to see if it works. Does this car have 2 fans? normally all the small cars have 2 fans one for the engine cooling and one to assist the first when the a/c is turned on. Without the fan pulling air through the a/c condensor the had pressure goes up high enough to shut off the a/c compressor. It also causes some cars to run warmer than usual when stopped. Check the a/c condensor for blockage also which doesn't have anything to do with your fan not working.

More than likely the problem is with one of the blend doors or its actuator motor inside the HVAC unit in the dash. The repair involves a partial disassembly of the dash to access the parts. This definitely not a thermostat issue.
