Ok, I feel like I should say up front that my entire car knowhow consists of how to change a tire, use jumper cables and check my fluid levels - none of this helps me with my current problem.
Yesterday when I was driving home from the grocery store the car started to smoke. I pulled over, popped the hood and let the thing air out - it stopped smoking instantly when the engine was turned off. Yesterday was the first day this fall that I needed to use the heater for any length of time, so I thought it might be the problem. Once I had aired the car out a bit I drove home with the heat and fan off and there was no more smoke. I drove again this morning without the heat on and there was no smoke.
My question is in two parts…
1 Am I right to assume that the problem is probably my heater or its fan?
2 If that is the problem what sort of parts need to be replaced, so I know if the person at the garage I will end up taking it to is honest with me about what needs to be replaced
Thanks so much for your help!
