Fine white smoke comung from vents on subaru outback


Could be a couple of things. If it smells sweet you may have a leak in your heater core. If it smells burnt it may be you heater fan is worn out. Does your fan make abnormal sounds?

SMOKE IS COMING FROM MY CROWN VIC VENTS THEN I SMELL A SWEET SMELL


the smoke is probably coolant steam and the sweet smell is the unique aroma of engine coolant (anti-freeze). check the carpets, they may be wet with coolant. most likely a heater core failure.

I have white exaust smoke coming out, ive already replaced my head gaskets and im not losing any coolant. truck does try to die on me when im going up hills and such. i have a rear main seal oil leak but i...


You need to smell the white smoke. If it is still burning coolant, the smoke will smell sweet and it will dissapate fairly quickly. if it stays like a cloud and doesn't have a sweet smell then it is most likley oil. When you changed the head gaskets did you check the heads for flatness? When you say it's not losing any coolant, how are you checking? do you take the cap off the radiator or do you look at the overflow tank? It doesn't take much coolant leaking into the cylinders to make white smoke. I would do a pressure test of the cooling system.

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.

There is white smoke coming out the tailpipe no smell of antifreeze


If it doesn't smell like sweet then you most likely got a bad tank of gas. Just to be safe keep an eye on your engine temp. and coolant levels.

this smell from tail pipe may be burning coolant, does it smell sweet, if so have head gasket checked. when a car has problems with something from tail pipe. it is usually the head gasket that is bad.

1999 ford expendition has smoke coming out of the vent


If it is a kind of sweet smell then your heater core needs to be replaced. It's leaking and you should keep an eye on your coolant level until you get it fixed. The smoke is coolant. Hope this helps.

If it smells sweet it is coolant and this is a sure sign your heater core is leaking. The only fix is to replace it.
