I just resently changed the water pump and when I turn on the truck it was fine, the I let it sit for a while and all of the sudden the antifreeze started dripping from a metal tube that comes from the inside of the truck and now all of my antifreeze is gone, and when I turn the ac, smoke comes from the vents and it smells like boiling antifreeze. How can I fix this prblem?

Sounds as if the heater core has failed, you will have to pressure test the system first to prove that this is the problem, the heater box may have to be removed to access the heater core, if you intend to do this job, I will look up the procedure
