What causes white smoke or steam to come out of the exhaust?


white smoke is an indication of coolant in the combustion chamber. I would suggest having a compression test done as there may be a gasket problem or cracked head.

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.

White smoke comes from hood of 89 ford pick up


White smoke is actually steam, get the cooling system pressure tested. There is an outside chance that the steam is gasoline vapor so get this checked right away

I have white smoke/steam coming from my air vents and antifreeze leaking from a spout in my firewall. Any ideas/solutions?


Your heater core is leaking steamed antifreeze into the vents and possible out the firewall,where the heater hoses connect to it. Have that checked out.

Why is there white smoke coming out of the air vents in my 1995 grand marquis


It is either steam from the cooling system and will have an odor, or is frost from the a/c system due to a system that is restricted and freezing up. Or you car is on fire. If it smells like smoke, run or you will die from smoke inhalation or burning to death.

Smell and white smoke coming thur ac vents


Your heater core has developed a leak (of coolant). The smell is the "sweet" smell of ethylene glycol,
a component of engine coolant. The white smoke is steam coming from the heated coolant evaporating.
The coolant is dripping into your duct work under the dashboard, and apparently being evaporated
out of the ductwork and sent into the passenger compartment, meaning its a small leak.
When the leak gets worse, you may get wet carpet on the front passenger side.

White smoke coming from tailpipe? Slight knocking noise. 99 Camry.


White smoke or steam? Smoke is oil buring and steam is coolant steaming. If this is steam, you have a blown head gasket...if oil, it could be either a oil ring problem or a valve seal problem.

Smoke coming through air vents


Is it smoke? Or is it steam? If it's really smoke, it will smell like burning wires and you have an electrical short somewhere. You're going to have a fire unless it's fixed.
My guess is that it's probably not smoke or you would have already had a fire.
With that said I'm going to say that it's steam in which case your heater core (which is a small radiator located under the dash) is leaking coolant and the resulting steam is rising through the vents. The steam will have a sort of sweet and yes, a steamy smell to it. It will also leave a funny film from the radiator coolant coating the inside of the windshield.
The heater core should be replaced if my assumptions are correct.

95 escort smoke from vents vibration when accelerating why??


The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect.
Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.

Smoke from the vents after upper heater hose replaced


Smoke through the vents indicates a heater core issue. If you are losing coolant and / or getting coolant inside the car (check the floor boards) this would tend to confirm a heater core. Best of luck to you.
