I have smoke coming from my vents. It smells like oil and is constant whether I have the vents on or not. Could this be a bad heater coil?

Is it smoke or steam?

Does it smell like burning oil or antifreeze?

Any wet spots on the carpet?

Hows the heat from the vents? Loss of antifreeze?

Sounds like you have a bad heater core to me. If there was antifreeze on the floor and the vapor coming out of the vents is oily and has a antifreeze smell, or taste to it.
