AnswerWater vapor will sometimes exit your car's vents when hot humid air passes through the A/C cooling system too fast for the condensing moisture to form into water droplets.

This can be resolved by selecting recycled air from inside the car, but the vapor is not harmful and usually doesn't last long.

What causes smoke to come out when a car is started?

The most common cause is worn valve guides. Any oil sitting on top of the valve will run down the valve stem while the car is not running. When you start the car, the oil that has accumulated at the valve seat immediately gets sucked into engine and burned off when the engine starts. This results in the blue puff of smoke coming out of your tail pipe which goes away after the motor has been running a while. Carl King
