At about 4:50 am on 2/4/14 I was driving about 20 mph in 9 degree f temperatures with the rear defrost on for about 8 min. I heard a loud pop like someone threw a rock at my truck.

1997 Ford f150, heater/defrost does not function properly all the time, more often than not blows cold air. In bad weather visabilty is greatly reduced.
There's a white powdery dust coming out of the defroster and heater. The ventilation system is on the whole time you drive the truck so it is blowing in your face all the time you are in it. I've been having problems with my eyes and sinuses and thought that it was from the pollen this time of year. Went to the Ford dealership and they didn't know what it could be. Now I'm worried about it might be making me and other people that ride in the truck sick. Can't find anyone to tell me what the powder is so my doctor can treat me. Please tell me you can help . Any imformation will help me . Thanks toni lynn kleeba.
