The coolant is not flowing, causing no heat. Look at the antifreeze coming out to see it there are bubbles in it. If there are bubbles then you have a blown head gasket. If not, then you have either a bad thermostat of bad water pump.

What could be causing the heater on a 1998 XLT Ford Expedition to blow cold air?

if you have the heat on in any vehicle, and there is only cold air coming out of the vents (providing the engine coolant temp gauge shows that the engine is warm) then there is no antifreeze flowing through the heater core, this may be caused by a couple of things: first, there might be a leak in the heater core, but usually antifreeze will be leaking into the heater core housing and will be visible, or there might not be enough antifreeze in the vehicles's radiator, or the water pump might be damaged and not circulating coolant. hope this helps and good luck!

What can cause white smoke coming out of vents?

That is probably antifreeze steam. Your heater core is a small radiator used to heat your car. The engine heats the antifreeze and circulates it through the heater core. Your blower blows heat through the core (radiator) into the car, and warms you. If the core gets a small leak, it will put out steam.
