Why do I have steam coming out of my defroster vents and smoke coming fromunder the firewall on my 1999 lincoln town car signature series

The first thing that comes to mind is a possible leaking heater core. If this is the case, the procedure to replace it is quit labor intensive.I have a question though, what temperature is it that is not getting hot? Is it the engine, or the temp of the heater?

2000 Lincoln Town Car. The A/C unit is erratic. When I increase speed, the a/c blower increases. To get any heat I have to put the temperature to 90 degrees. Any advice?

The heater core and radiator require flushing every 2 years / 24,000 miles.
The coolant cap on the reserve tank need to be pressure tested.
Please do the flush with water and it it circle for 1 day then re-flush again
Fill with 50/50 coolant mix.

My lincoln is shot smoke out of the vents when I turned the defroster on and there is a strange smell comming from the vents as well. Also, the front window will not defrost but i can get cold and hot air....

The smell you are probably smelling is leaking coolant coming from your heater core, check your coolant level and see if its low if its low you are probbaly loosing your coolant because of a bad heater core, if this is the case i wouldnt drive the vehical until its repaired, if you run the car out of coolant you run the risk of engine damage from overheating and that would be a very expensive repair.....

I have a 1998 Lincoln town car and the front windshield fogs up and it smells like antifreeze in side do i have a leek under the dash can you please help me

as a temporary repair you can loop the heater hose back to the engine and bypass the heater core. this will allow you to operate the car without out overheating it. You will, however, have no heat in the car.
