Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you saw a refrigerant leak if you saw what appeared to be smoke with a hissing noise and it is now blowing hot. It could be a damage component, a leak at a connection or it may have come from the compressor high pressure relief valve.

What area did you see this come from?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Before this was it blowing cool while driving but warming up at stops and slow speeds?
