Loud pop followed by cabin filling up with a light smoke, then no air conditioning. So it seems to be related to the air but anyone know what it may be?

Was the pop and smoke an isolated incident or does it happen every time you turn the AC on?
First time it ever happened .. I started the car, heard the pop, saw some light smoke, and now I have no air.

EDIT .. I just looked under the car and there is a small pool of yellow / greenish liquid underneath, looks like fresh coolant but the engine coolant level seems OK.

Do the vents blow at all or just blow hot?

Sounds like maybe a blower motor resistor but tough to say without a few more details about the "no air".

The vent fan is working, but does not blow cool air .. just whatever temp the outside air is at. So A/C is out for sure, there was a loud pop for sure, there was slight smoke for sure, and there is a bright yellow leak for sure .. could the A/C bust the same time as a coolant leak developed?

You had something burst. Hopefully it was a line that was rubbing on something. That yellowish/green fluid is mineral oil and leak detector from your A/C system. Track that down and find your leak, then try to figure out what would cause the system to over pressurize.

Thank you!

I was really wondering about the yellow fluid, especially since the coolant level remained unchanged.
