today i've got my A/C on... on "high", and suddenly smoke starts coming out! Not thick smoke, just vaguely white, but definately smoke... it smells like nothing, and it's not just "cold air" because my A/C has never blown that cold.

what could it be? it stopped after a few seconds, but it comes out for like 20 seconds every now and then

maybe the referigerant charge is low and causing the coil to freeze up...
how is the coil going to freeze??????????????????

exactly, when it's humid out, the coil will get a coating of ice on it, as the air passes by the frozen coil, the moisture in the air freezes.
Its the same as breathing on a cold winter day...

Sometimes when your heater core's goin' out it'll blow smoke-but it's probably just condensation from the A/C.

It could also be the end of your heater core, its isn't 'smoke' but more likely steam. My Ford (I wish I didnt, but i do own one) and their chronic death of heatercores in 80s cars educated me on this topic. Apparently on some a valve sticks open and since we are talking some hot ass water (same water running thru the engine goes the the core) Gievn a chance to the atmosphere it evaporates thru the valve out your air system. Assuming this is the problem the cheap way is to bypass the heater core altogether, much like myself. or you could buy a new one...

This would be my guess too. I have my GT and my S10 bypassed. It works.
