basically guys, i have been given an ultimatum. either i sort out the stink coming through the vents or i can kiss goodbye to my missus ever getting into the car again(i have to admit that today was especially bad). now i know for some of you guys this would be a pretty easy, no brainer decision, but we have two kids for gods sake and she is the only one who knows the combination for the safe deposit box. therefore can you please help me with this smelly problem? the car that is.

is there something wrong with the vents or is there something wrong with the cooling defrosting system?

I know mine gets a little musty once in a while. I use Febreze. You can find it at any grocery store in the laundry department. Just open the hood and turn the vents on high. Spray into the vent on the out side of the windshield several times. I am sure it is water accumulating and getting stale. I hope this helps.

I had the same problem with mine. I went to the dealer, they changed the fluid in the whole system, cleaned the stuff up (there were some "mushrooms" around, yiek) and since then I do not have any problems. The AC is always on i nmy car as it starts smelling again when it turns on/off often.

Take you car to a repair shop. They have this foamy stuff that they inject into your venting system. Either that or go to your local auto parts store. You can get stuff that you spray into your intake vent (in front of the windsheild).... OR get some Lysol an spray that into your intake vent. The stuff that smells is mildew in the vent system (see previous post about mushrooms!) You need to kill that stuff.

...and if nothing works...i think the car should stay. lol

here are some reasons why:

How many men does it take to open a beer? None. It
should be
opened by the time she brings it.

Why is a Laundromat a really bad place to pick up
a woman? Because a
woman who can't even afford a washing machine will
never be able to
support you.

Why do women have smaller feet than men? So they
can stand
closer to the kitchen sink.

Why do men pass gas more than women? Because
women won't shut up long enough to build up

If your dog is barking at the back door and your
wife is yelling at
the front door, who do you let in first? The dog of
least he'll shut up after you let him in.

All wives are alike, but they have different faces so
you can tell them apart.

What's worse than a Male Chauvinist Pig? A woman
that won't do
what she's told. I married Miss Right. I just
didn't know her first name
Always. I haven't spoken to my wife for 18months, I
don't like to interrupt
Bigamy is having one wife too many. Some say
monogamy is the same.

Scientists have discovered a food that diminishes a
woman's sex drive
by 90%... Wedding cake.

Marriage is a 3 ring circus: Engagement ring,
wedding ring, and suffe-ring.

The last fight was my fault. My wife asked, "What's
on the TV?" I said,

In the beginning, God created earth and rested.
Then God created man and
rested. Then God created woman. Since then, neither
God nor man has

My wife and I are inseparable. In fact, last week
it took four
state troopers and a dog.

Why do men die before their wives? They want to.

What is the difference between a dog and a fox?
About 5 drinks.

A beggar walked up to a well dressed woman shopping
on Rodeo drive and
said "I haven't eaten anything in four days." She
looked at him and
said, "God, I wish I had your willpower."

Do you know the punishment for bigamy? Two

Young Son: Is it true, Dad, I heard that in
some parts of Africa a man doesn't know his wife
until he marries her?
Dad: That happens in every country, son.

The most effective way to remember your wife's
birthday is to forget it

First guy (proudly):
"My wife's an angel!" Second guy: "You're lucky,
mine's still alive."

Just think, if it weren't for marriage, men would
go through life
thinking they had no faults at all.

If you want your wife to listen and pay undivided
attention to every
word you say, talk in your sleep.

Then there was a man who said, "I never knew what
real happiness was until
got married; and then it was too late."

A little boy asked his father,
"Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?" And
the father replied,
"I don't know son, I'm still paying."

Women will never be equal to men
until they can walk down the street with a bald
head and a beer gut, and
still think they are beautiful.

thanks for the advice. i will try the spraying thing first before i get the system cleaned out due to the fact that any visit to a mitsu dealer over here always leaves me cleaned out.

kcalvano.... lol. i can't wait for my wife to wake up so i can share some of my new found wisdom with her. i'll keep you posted on the divorce proceedings.
