My thought is your leaking coolant, so it is turning to steam on the engine or exhaust pipes. The heater won't work because the coolant level is low. So find the cause of the leak, repair/replace the part and refill with antifreeze/water 50/50. Could be the water pump, a gasket, hose, radiator. coolant tank, etc.
