What causes smoke to come through the vents on a 2004 Jeep Liberty 5 speed manual 3.7L engine?


It will most likely be whisps of steam you see through the vents often accompanied with sweet smell. The heater core is usually the culprit and is leaking. Any coolant stains/wet marks on the passenger floor. Does the windshield fog up when on defrost. All signs of a leaky heater core

Smoke coming from the hood check engine light


Someone else's code may not help you as the light could come on for a number of reasons. Smoke under your hood could be due to a leak or leaks such as oil, coolant, power steering fluid and so on and as the engine gets hot the fluids will burn off on the hot engine or exhaust causing it to smoke. The smell when you turn the heat on could be because your heater core is leaking. This would be accompanied with low coolant levels, overheating and low heat especially at idle also the carpet may be wet. If your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter the smell could also come from there as leaves and other debris and sometimes even rodents can get in there. Also if you don't allow you evaporator to dry by shutting off the ac but letting the fan run for a couple of minutes the water on the evaporator can cause mold and mildew to grow giving you a funny smell as well. Hope this helps.

Hi, i would like to know why when i run the a/c ,the next day i get that steal smeal from the vents. i changed the cabin air filters ,but still the smell remains. please help. AD


This smell is caused by mold and mildew build up in the AC air passages and on the heater and the AC evaporator cores in the dash, u can spray LYSOL mold and mildew remover into the system at the air intake in front of the windshield with the blower turned to max, use about 1/4 can, then turn off the system and let it sit for an hour, then turn it back on with full heat, let that run to dry out the chemical, this will cure the smell short term until the mold and mildew grow back, it is a fix we did often in the shop, the wetter the climate u live in the worse the problem

I have a 1998 Expedition Eddie Bauer 2wd 5.4L. I was driving down the road the other day w/o any air or heat turned on, and a foul smell started coming out of the vents where the ac and heater air come out...


something near the a/c vent (under your hood) started to burn or burnt something stuck in there like leaves or plastic etc. check your lines and fuels, make sure nothing's leaking or dried up.

2004 DODGE STRATUS HAS WET FLOOR ON PASSENGERS SIDE ONLY.


probably your AC condensor hose...It's pinched or clogged, and the water is backing up through your floor vent (ONLY when you have your AC running).

VIbration in AC/HEATER fan


I've had mice in my Nissan PU and actually caught one in a trap set on the floorboard; so I know they can get inside. They also knocked some of the fiberglass insulation into the blower motor so it vibrated as it was no longer balanced. You could have a dead one in your blower. Mine was easily accessible from under the passenger side under the dash. Three screws and the motor dropped so I could clean out the fiberglass.

AC-Funny smell when car slows or stopped.


You definitely need to get that checked by a pro. Don't fool around with a problem like that, it could be serious.

Horrible smell coming out of the ac system


disconnection your fan has 3-4 screws and check for a dead mouse or two and bits of dried grass. They like to build nest in there. If your car sits for extended amounts of time that seems to be when the animals call it home. It was not a pleasant job for me to get them out you just have to get rubber gloves and do it.
