Smoke could be coming from the vents of your car for a number of reasons. You may have an internal car fire.

Compost naturally emits gases as it decomposes. These vents are to prevent a build up these gases particularly methane(natural gas) as it is highly flammable.

If that smoke is more like steam, you have a leaky heater core.

Vents should be cross ventilated in homes. This is an example sentence for vents.

Air conditioning unit has iced up. Don't use it for a while and it should come right

The magma gushes out and then it flows every where. The volcano has vents that let air come out. When the vents open steam/ smoke comes out of those vents.

Smoke from the vents can indicate a problem with the brushes in the interior blower motor. It may also be a symptom of the vehicle being on fire in which case evacuation and retreat to a safe distance is advisable.

I assume you mean smoke and water are coming from the A/C vents. I suspect you are seeing steam and coolant. You probably have a heater core leaking.I assume you mean smoke and water are coming from the A/C vents. I suspect you are seeing steam and coolant. You probably have a heater core leaking.

It was just condensation in the air coming out of the ac system and into the car. Nothing more than a bit of misty moisture that you could actually see coming out of the vents. It was not smoke unless you actually smelled something burning. Crank her up to 90 next time while you're at it... It was just condensation in the air coming out of the ac system and into the car.

The blower resister is not supposed to be grounded. The smoke may be steam from a leaky heater core.

Thanks for answering the question Should ceiling vents be directed towards the window or the room? NOT

Check all of your vacuum lines from the ac control panel and under your hood. You have lost vacuum somewhere witch controls your vents. There is one of them loose, disconnected or broken. Should be easy to trace. Good Luck!!

Shut the car off and get out. Something is broken and if its producing smoke, it could catch on fire.

Your AC might be blowing out of dash vents on the windscreen as you might have turned the knob to that particular mode. It is also possible that the vent mechanism might be out of order or broken.

sounds like your air conditioner compressor is bad.

It is probably steam coming from a leaky heater core.
