Smoke from under dashboard above steering wheel?

Okay, i'm sort of a novice when it comes to cars but i have a 2000 Tacoma that i bought new from the dealership. A few weeks back my windshield started fogging up on the passenger side. That has now stopped but a week ago it began fogging up on the drivers side. A couple of days ago while driving i noticed what appeared to be smoke rising from the vents on the dash above the steering wheel. This is causing kind of a filmy fog on the inner windshield. It goes away after the car sits overnight. Anyone have any insight? Is this electrical or something to do with the heating and/or cooling system?

Sounds like it's time for a heater core replacement to me. Might try wiping the fog off the windshield with a white paper towel and checking for color and smell but it's not an uncommon problem.

Sounds about right from what i've heard. Which then means lots of $$ in labor. Oh well, thanks for the input! Checking with my mechanic tomorrow (today).
