When the heater core rusted out in my vc commodore, it leaked coolant into the passenger side of the car.

When my EB Falcon stopped blowing hot air, it was the thermostat on the motor.

You can guess which was cheaper to repair :)

Take the thermostat housing off and just see if it is all rusted and rotted underneath (as mine was) or take it to a mechanic to check.

What causes steam to come through your vents inside the car?

I would think if steam is coming from your vents that you have a leaking or defective heater core and or one of its components and in most cases the water leaking from the core can be found in the floor board on the passsenger side and this needs to be fixed right away due to engine coolant loss and the possiblity of engine damage from overheating.
