It is not fixed by an aerosol or scent additive to the air in the cabin. It will only mask the smell for a period of time.

Your cause is the air filter for the A/C system. You can buy a new one at local auto stores.

To replace it, you will need to open your hood. On the passenger side of the car, look just under the windshield at the trim panel under the wipers. You will see several tabs holding down this particular side of the trim piece. Using a phillips head screwdriver, gently rotate the screw pieces out of the tab holder (if this doesn't get it, you'll need to use a small flat head in unison to apply pressure to the screw to come out). There are 3. Once these are removes, gently pull the hood rubber gasket seal up and place out of the way. Note: you won't need to remove it from the car, just enough to clear the trim piece. Remove the trim and you will see a filter. Remove the filter and replace. Installation of trim is reverse.

That will fix your mildew smell from the vents. This WILL NOT fix a mildew smell if caused by interior mildew.

Note: The directions to change this filter are also found in your Owner's Manual if you have it. It is a simple procedure and should take about 15 minutes if you are taking your time.

Thanks for the inquiry.

Usually caused by a problem with the engine air intake. Check the entire intake system including the filter and throttle body, and particularly the MAP (mass air flow) sensor and the IAC (idle air control motor).

No matter what setting you have the air or heat on, it still comes out all the settings(vents, defrost and floor vents) all blow at same time in my 2003 chevy impala


sounds like you have a bad blend door motor that is stuck in the middle allowing for all vents to blow air... locate the motor under the dash and remove it. manually move the lever and see if it changes the flow.. check for power at that motor to make sure your getting the signal from the dash then you'll have found your problem....

My wife has a 2007 chevy impala on idle it is not blowing warm air when you drive down the road it blows warm air you can smell anti freeze but see no leaks what is problem


It sounds to me like you are possibly describing a low coolant condition caused by a leaking heater core. If you can smell the antifreeze, there is a leak. You just have not checked good enough.

One of the sensor inside the wheel might be bad. You could have damaged it by hitting a curb maybe. You need to have it scan to see witch wheel tire presure sensor is bad. Good Luck

I smell gas in the interior of my chevy 2004 impala what would cause this?


a fuel leak somewhere in your engine compartment. if you can't find it and fix it..get it fixed professionally ASAP! that can get dangerous very quickly. the leak is flowing into your ventalation system through the hood then up into the cowel vent at the base of your window. keep your vents closed and drive with your windows rolled down until its fixed.
