White Smoke Above Dash Drivers Side
2003 TJ, 4.0, 5 speed
So this problem has happened to me about 4 times now. Basically after driving somewhere occasionally I will notice some white smoke coming out from between the dashboard and windshield frame just above the drivers side vent.
1) My first thought was that I was burning the Clutch because it was after I had been sitting in some heavy traffic on a hill. But this was just 1/4 times, the other 3 times were normal driving conditions although a lot of stop and go.
2) Each time I believe I had vent knob on one of the AC settings, my AC however doesnt work I just leave the knob usually in the recycle position. After searching the forums, I saw some people suggest it was a freon leak, but I never got any odor.
About my AC, it didnt work when I bought the jeep so I decided to get a mechanic to top up the freon to see if I had a leak, but he said the system was already charged.From there I didn't really bother to look much further into the AC problem.
My real question is this something I should be worried about? I regularly check all the jeeps fluids and the jeep never overheats so I'm wondering what this occasional smoke is.
Any help is much appreciated.
