    you may be right. The ac control knob now stick before it goes to the blower setting. Once I mildly force it, the blower does not come on. I removed the panel and the ac control knob unit. The knob feels like its missing a gear on the inside now. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Are you sure it's smoke? Probably not smoke, the coils are freezing up and the air is so cold it condenses and looks like smoke coming out.

My wife says there was smoke and a burning smell coming from the dash of our 2001 Dodge Neon today. She let it set for 4 hrs then drove home with a fire extinguisher. No smoke I had an old Dodge...

I'd first check for wiring/fuses - make sure all electrics work. If I'm not mistaken, car has a cabin filter that might need changing. I don't think vent/leave is the issue.

I have a BMW X5 4.4L 2001 model. The problem is with the air quality. There seems to be some smell coming out of the aircon and sometimes smoke comes in also.

The air/con ducts can get a buildup of '****' in them.The dealer will charge a lot to fix this.Get some Glen 20(anti-bacterial spray) and with the vents in recirculating cycle,spray it in the inlet vents under the dash in the footwell area.Also get a spray called odour-off.Use this also.For about 10 dollars you can fix the problem.It works.The smoke coming out is usually condensation mist and nothing to worry about.Hope this helps

Smoke coming out of vents

if it smells like sweet antifreeze, it is
the heater core is not he A/C evaporator core.

the core fails due to not replacing the antifreeze coolant before it goes acidic ... (not doing service here)

Smoke coming out of vent when defoster is on

I believe the problem you have is a leaking heatercore, I have not done one on a Blazer- Jimmy but will get to do it soon to mine ( 1998 Jimmy )it looks to me as though you have to access this from under the dash and inside the truck. If your more of a large type, like me, you might want to concider having your local mechanic do it as working under the dash and upsidedown could be a little uncomfortable. Hope this helps.
