If it smells like coolant and the heat is on the heater core is leaking. if you are getting this with the ac on the evaporator is freazing up probably because the electric fan under the hood is not working correctly

I have a 2007 Expedition and front blows out out the defrost vent and you can change to floor but won't blow out the middle vents. Temp changes ok.

These vehicles have an electronic vent control that tends to malfunction like what you're describing. If you can locate it (Google vent door actuator location 2007 expedition), once you locate it start vehicle. Observe the white circle on actuator. With each vent selection it should turn. If it doesn't respond to each position this is your problem. They normally last about 5years

Why is gray smoke coming from the top of my dashboard vents when i turn my heater on in my 89 ford f-150 truck?

Are you sure its smoke not steam? Most common problem is the heater core leaking. Look for moisture on the floor boards first. If it is wet then you have a heater core problem

1997 VW Jetta 5-speed, 2.0 liter Loosing coolant/water. Some due to evaporation and heat here in Texas during summer, but. . . much more and more rapidly than that would explain. No apparent leak...

You should not loose coolant under any temprature conditions unless you have a leak somewhere. using strait water is not recomended , the engines normal operating temp will be above the boiling point of water. you need antifreeze to raise that boil temp higher. Strait water will boil , turn to steam , and vent out the overflow container , thus slowly disapearing. Drain your system enough to add the correct amount of coolant and see what happens. It's possible that you might be loosing some through a leaky head gasket , which might drip out of the exhaust and / or appear as a higher than normal amount of steam coming out the tail pipe.

Frontier 2000 2.4L King Cab 100K miles. Temp guage indicates overheating. Will intermittently spike then drop to normal. Engine does not "smell" hot or run rough at any time. Grab upper hose, you can...

I've had problems with Datsun (later Nissan) engines hanging the closed thermostat until it boiled, then the thermostat released and operated normally. If you increase the small vent hole in the thermostat valve plate a small amount, the problem disappears. It seems that steam from engine operation gathers behind the thermostat sensing bulb and delays opening. The increase in vent hole size lets the steam through and allows the hot water to open the valve. Hope this helps!

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.

when your car is in defrost it has an ac cycling it removes the moisture then sends the air over the heater core depending on how warm you set it you can feel warm or cold but the ac is always cycling...ridding the need a good ac tech it will be okay...its just expensive going into the heater core if needed...!

So I am guessing the heater core, the only other thing it would be would be any leak that is allowing moisture in the car. is the floor board wet on the passengers side?
