I had an AC diagnosis, they said the evaporator was shot. Now the car stinks to high heaven when AC or heater is on. What gives? Is there a way to "plug up" a evoporator? OR How do I get rid of the smell?

Default Re: AC STINKS

The area gets bacteria growing from the condensation. There are cleaning kits available. First you need to make sure the drain hole is not plugged up. Then I think you shoot the cleaner in from the drain hole. It's a foam and fills up like shaving cream and kilsl the bacteria. That should stop the smell. I think you shoot this stuff in the ducts as well just follow the directions. That should take care of the problem for a while. If the evaporator is really clogged with stuff you may have to repeat it a few times a year. Otherwise you need to remove or replace it and that requires removing the whole dash. $$$$$$

Good luck!!

Charcoal briquettes (Kingsford for the grill) will help to lessen or eliminate the smell or granulated charcoal but it could be messy if spilled
