    that filter only works for air comming from the outside not the inside, so no a filter change will not help. stop smoking and live.

My car reeks of stale cigarette smoke, because I never empty my ashtray, and this car has been smoked in for the last 18 years. It was my moms car then she gave it to me and me and my sister have been smoking in it for the last 6 years, by the way the windows don't roll down so we run the air conditioning all the time. We have tried everything to kill the smell but nothing seems to work.

No filter but Oust works pretty good if you spray it into the passenger side floor to have the a/c return **** it up and back through the vents.

Ill turn on my car and it won't start unless my foot on the gas. It will turn on here and there. As soon as it turns on it throws black smoke and a terrible smell like gas mix with alcohol. I change the...


Hello,

Black smoke is usually a sign of the accelerator pump set wrong, a choke plate could be partially closed and it could also be a really clogged air filter. If you pulled the air filter and the car turned on with no problems then replace it as this is one of the reasons for black smoke. It's not often a gas vehicle blows black smoke. The vehicle is starving for air.

The injectors have o-rings that will wear and cause fuel leak into engine and cause same smoke problem ,but glow plugs are only for engine firing.........you can change o-rings only but if it has lot of miles i would do injectors...
however make sure the fuel rail isnt leaking at injector connection.also check exhaust for excessive heat or noise inside cat.converter if you can shake it.....some come apart inside.....
it would be worth having the engine scanned to make sure 02 sensors are good..they control air/fuel mix and if oxygen level is incorrect it will burn more fuel and sometimes fuel scent but not very bad.

Black smoke comes from exhuast when engine gets hot


black smoke is raw gas burning. a rich condition could be the cause---a bad oxygen sensor, a bad map sensor, a bad fuel pressure regulator, a plugged up air filter, or bad injector. if it was a oil problem then you can smell it. when after running til hot. shut off engine and rub finger around inside of tailpipe to tell! have a good one!!

How do I locate/change air conditioning filter on 2005 Pacifica? I'm lying under the glove box on the passenger side, but don't see where I ''unlock'' it & remove it. In fact, I can't even figure out...


The new filter will not change the smell or filter smoke or much else. Just picks up outside dust,sort of.
May be under wiper cover/air intake cover. Open hood and check that out,on pass side.

I smoke while the condition is on so I face a problem of bad smell from the condition. Can I clean the aircon. filters & how??


try swithcing the control to fresh air and crach the pass. side window just when you smoke. this will bring in fresh air from outside, and pull the smoke away from you but the air will not be as cold as recirulate mode hope this helps

Excel 1.3 looks like it´s burning oil.-


first of all change spark plugs to the standards of the car ,, maybe you have bad spark plugs .. does your car have a white smoke in exhaust ? if so then its something has to be replaced inside 2 and 3 cyclinders thats an advanced failure
if you have no smoke in exhaust check top oil gasket .. when did you change it ?
