What causes steam to blow through the air conditioning and heating vents in a car?
The steam could be coolant from a bad heater core.

In a steam heating system, the pipes transport steam or water vapor to the radiators to heat the building. Insulating the pipes reduces the amount of heat lost to the surrounding environment. Any heat lost in the pipes cannot be used to heat the radiators, and causes the system to be less energy efficient.
To generate steam to drive turbines to generate electricity, Steam used for air conditioning systems, heating ,hot water ,process applications, driving steam engines , boilers to run ships using super heated steam, auto clave's, portable heat /hot water for buildings. smaller boilers to generate power to run cars
Steam that was reduced in pressure from that at which it was generated in the boiler. Reducing the steam pressure can be accomplished by running it through a turbine or engine, a reducing valve or a regulator. Reduced pressure steam is often used for auxiliary equipment or heating systems after the primary process has been supplied steam at the generated pressure.
ACCORDING TO PHYSICS :- Since the latent heat of vaporisation of Steam is so high as 2268 Joules , thus so as to convert from the Gaseous State to liquid Sate , Steam liberates 2268 J/Kg of heat energy to the Surrounding. In this way it proves more efficient to use Steam than Electricity for heating.
While baking, the cake expands. This is due to the moisture in the batter heating up, and turning into steam. The steam expands and tries to rise. This causes the cake to puff up and rise, too. When the cake cools, or the steam escapes, the cake will fall as there is nothing to push it and expand it anymore.
Choo Choo Choo.....It comes from the release of the pressure from the piston used to drive the arm that turns the wheels. The exhaust steam is vented up through the funnel (chimney) via blast pipe. This is at the front of the boiler tubes and causes a vacuum, drawing air through the tubes and the fire box. So actually running the engine causes more effecient fire to boil the water and make steam. It's the…
Steam Radiators Electric Radiators Traditional radiators are powered by steam or hot water. A boiler in the basement of a building heats pressurized water to an extremely high temperature, turning it into steam. As the water turns into a gas, it expands and becomes less dense, which causes it to flow up through steam tubes into radiators in the building. As the water flows through tubes inside the metal radiators, some of its heat is…
Steam traps help out in a couple of ways: Where steam is being passed through a turbine, entrained liquid droplets could cause problems when the impact the blades of the turbine. Where steam is being used to heat something, the liquid has already lost the heat of vaporization, so it is not worth transporting for heating purposes.
