Dust coming into car cabin

I travel a gravel road every day - about 12 km total. My car is completely filled with dust inside the cabin. I was told to do up all the windows, etc. and crank the fan up to create a vacuum in the cabin. This also did not help. My dealer says "there is nothing they can do". This is very aggrivating!! It's a brand new car and I have never had this problem in the past. What is wrong and what can be done to fix it?

Make sure you have your vent settings on recirculate and not fresh air.

SOURCE: Strong odor of gasoline inside cabin

The is a short rubber hose in the the fuel line that connects to metal tubes on the driver side of the engine. When it is cold, the rubber shrinks, and if the clamps are loose, the fuel will leak from there. Tighten the clamps or replace the short hose with a hose that has some flex, a bit long, to accommodate the shrinkage movement. 
Good luck with the dealer, because when the engine heats up the hose the fuel does not leak at all. This was a recall on WRXs but even with the same setup, Subaru denies there is an issue in the 2.5 fuel line layout.  My dealer told me to call a tow truck when it happens again, no matter where or when, and bring it in?!?!?!

SOURCE: turn the key and nothing happens,no crank,no sound,no start

It seems that you have a loose wire, bad connector or perhaps the main computer itself that is causing a problem If the shop is not seeing any codes, or codes come and go, likely I'm right...but someone is going to have to actually do some intensive testing to find the real cause. You can likely get another computer from a local scrapyard far cheaper than what the dealer will charge you...as far as wiring, you need a good accurate schematic a good volt/ohmeter and lots of time to trace wiring. When checking connectors test the pin, then probe the wire going into the pin...often the problem is where a wire meets the backside of the pin, either corroding or breaking..This also applies to any modules such as the security system...what you see on the dash does not always tell you that connection to components is good. This is not a "fix, but rather, a direction to go in. (exactly what I"d need to do if I was there)
Right now, everything is suspect including fuel system, till you rule it out!!!

2010 audi q7 shows on the board service 700km 30 days. what does it mean? what service is it?


It's the normal car service reminder due. Whichever will be reached first: 700 km, or 30 days. In other words after 700 km, or if you don't drive the car 700 km within 30 days, you should carry out the car maintenace: engine oil & oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, pollen & dust cabin filter, ...
Then you will need to reset the "Service due" message on the dashboard. For Audi Q7 made year 2010, the Service Interval Indicator can only be reset with the VAS 5051 or similar diagnostic tool connected to the data link connector of the car.

I have a 3s 2000cc egine, the problem is high fuel consumption. Imagin 1lt only going for 6km. Please help.


Hi there,

As you have not stated the vehicle MODEL or Year of Manufacture, I will provide a 'general' solution:

There could be numerous causes for high fuel consumption, but if you have used this amount of fuel in such a short journey, there would have to be leaking fuel somewhere.

However, the only true method to measure "ACTUAL" fuel consumption (disregard trip computer) is:

- Completely fill tank to a pre-determined point inside the fuel tank filler tube.
- Set your cluster Trip Meter to: 0000
- Drive vehicle for 6 - 15km and return back to the same gas station pump used previously.
- Completely fill tank to the same point inside the fuel tank filler tube, where filled previously.
- Note the quantity of litres required to fill to that same point in the filler tube.
- Divide the litres used, by the total Km travelled on your Trip Meter.
- If the value calculates less than 20 (carburettor engine); less than 15 (EFI engine), then consumption is acceptable.

Note: if value is above these numbers, then you have a fuel leak, or a problem with your vehicle's carburettor adjustment. EFI engines can have numerous causes, including electronic sensor faults etc.

Cheers,

The dust is everywhere inside. The dashboard is always covered...so are the seats. The dust is literally everywhere. When we have gone shopping, by the time we get home the shopping bags are even...


Are the vents open ? It shouldn't be to hard to locate where it's coming from, if your running your A/C then put the setting on interior recirculate not outside air (pulls outside air thru the fan). I could help out more but you didn't state the make model or year of your car.

When should you replace the inside air filter for an rx330.I have 50k miles it's 2004


The cabin air filter is usually replaced at the same time as the air filter. They are pretty much the same thing. So, if you haven't replaced it, then go ahead.
