SOURCE: 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.

Is it the heater core? Check for anti-freeze on the passager side floor.

I just put a bypass hose on my 91 Buick lasbre and turn on the heat and started seeing steam come out the vents and now its steam on my windshield


Sounds like you have a bad heater core or you have antifreeze leaking in the into the heater box. Maybe a loose clamp on the bypass hose or maybe you damaged the heater core tube when you installed or removed the bypass hose and now it is not sealing properly.

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.

Steam slowly coming out of passenger side vent.Smells like antifreeze.dont see nothing leaking.If heating core how hard to replace.


The heater core is located behind the dashboard, on the passenger side. Steam from the vent and an antifreeze smell is a decimate sign that the heater core is leaking and needs replacement.
The procedure for removal and installation varies depending on your make and model, your profile says only "ford cars and trucks" so I can't say off the top of my head if your vehicle is an easy job or a hard one.
A simple instalation would involve removing only an access panel under the dash and maybe the glove box door. Difficult ones can require removal of the entire dashboard.
Look through a repair manual for your make and model (available at almost any parts store) to see how your heater core is accessed and decide if you can do the job yourself. Good luck.

Antifreeze steam comeing through vents


Your heater core has a leak, it's like a small radiator that heats up and the blower motor blows air thru it to create heat in the car. It is leaking anti freeze into the heater box.

No heat , antifreez leak not visable...


A car this new should have a warranty right? the only other place for anti-freeze to go is through a blown headgasket into your oil. Pull out your oil dipstick and make sure it is not milky in color. If not check behind the engine and see if any coolant lines going into the firewall are leaking. When inside the car do you smell steaming coolant(anti-freeze) or hear gurgling? The temp gauge that stays on is the overheat indicator?
