Bad Smell Fixed
When I got my truck it had been sitting in a garage in Pennsylvania for a couple of months. Every time I turned the car on it smelled really bad so I assumed that the air filters were just dirty.
I read the manual on how to replace the two cabin air filters.
I detached the clips on the glove compartment, swung it down, and opened the cover to the air filters.
I pulled the first filter out and it was RANK. I discovered that a family of field mice had built a nest on top of the air filters and lined it with insulation from the garage.
There were 3 or 4 dead carcasses buried in the insulation and they STUNK. Big time.
I extracted everything I could find, vacuumed it out and put in new filters. Works fine and no more oders.
