You will most likely have to remove the control panel from the dash. Check for any broken hoses and any broken or loose wires. If everything checks out ok, than the control itself may have to be replaced.

    Also, if that is not an option for you right now, You can always buy some sponges and block the vents.

Smelling exhaust while in traffic


Are you sure is exhaust emission or a fuel smell? If is others Exhaust emission,and is coming in the cabin possible you might have ventilators not working properly,or the doors under the dashboard are kept slight open allowing the outside smell or getting inside the cabin. On the dashboard there is a circulation air button,press it to work. What that button does? Is blocking the outside air coming in and the air you are using iis the inside cabin air only. Use that button for a day and see whether you have any improvement. If so you have to go back to the dealer and explain. Surely they will help you.

2003 ford expedition i just got it a week ago and the front heat works great but the back vents only blow cold air. How do i fix this?


With the car parked and engine idling, turn the ventilation control between windshield defroster and "open air ducts" to front and rear vents. Listen to pinpoint where the valves are that open and closes the air ducts. It sounds like the air duct to rear vents are blocked, and the cold air in rear air duct is coming from "outside ventilation." The air vent to allow hot air to the rear vent is stuck in "open ventilation" mode, like when you're driving in spring or summer months.

Smell of burning oil out of heater vents


Have you checked under the hood,Mark? The heater commonly pulls outside air thru the vents and can get air coming up from the engine,so I'd look for a smell outside the car,under the hood.Let me know what you find.
You can alleviate it some by using the recycle air button on your heater,but you need to find the source quickly,so you don't have a fire. don-ohio (:^)

We first noticed a problem when our 98 expedition started overheating, we put in the coolant and went on our way. A few days later smoke started coming in the vents when the AC was on high. We checked the...


Your auto is definitely loosing coolant and will overheat. Check your thermostat, hoses, belts, radiator cap and water pump. If you do not fix the leak or coolant circulation problem you can destroy your engine. The smell inside can be being picked up from the outside vent or it could be your heater core inside the ventillation area leaking (which could be your coolant leak).. If that is the case you will need to replace the heater core.

Camry ventilation system


Hi. The smell is due to water accumulation in the outside ventilation chamber every time there is a rain, or you wash it, water will get in it, no matter what you do, unless you got the car garaged, of course. Replace the cabin air filter, and remove the grill underneath the windshield wipers and vacuum it. That's the best thing you can do.
