I've been having this smoke looking substance coming through my AC vents when I turn on the AC. Only happens with the AC, not just vents, and only for a few seconds right after I turn it on. It's odorless, but clearly visible. Anyone have any ideas what it is?

It's snow!! Well not exactly but it's normal when the cab is super humid. Your pulling in a lot of moisture across the EVAP coil and it's freezing. I am in and out of my truck without shutting it off and I will leave teh door open for 10-30 seconds and when I get back it the A/C is blowing frost. Nothing to worry about.

Thanks for clearing that up. It was kind of freaking me out. I was thinking like "hold your breath, it's carbon monoxide!". Lol. Yes I know, carbon monoxide is colorless... Still got me worried though.

Just means your AC is working good and cold, think of when you open your freezer you see the steam, same premise here.

Yea this had happened to me very recently. Here in San Diego we've been experiencing very humid summer days, and I thought my truck was on fire! It went away though and my AC kept me cool!
