Musty Smell when A/C is turned on in Pontiac Grand Prix


If your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter replace it. And to prevent the smell from coming back shut the ac off but leave the blower motor on to dry up the evaporator. Not allowing to dry will result in mold growth

My car is smelling musty when I burn my ac or heater. What could that be?


This is caused by mold and mildew growing in the moist environment of the AC air ducting and on the Evaporator core, this moisture condenses from the cooling of the air stream. To temporarily cure this problem spray Lysol disinfectant into the Air intake of the system which is in front of the windshield on the passenger side, set the blower speed to high and soak the system with the spray, then let it run a few more seconds and shut it down, this stops the smell for a few months and then it must be repeated.

The heater has a musty smell,I suspect i need to


It sounds to me if you are having a "musty smell" then you might have a problem with your condensation drain line for you a/c system or a small leak on your heater core. If it is plugged then water will collect in the vent system causing a musty smell from the water not draining and if there is a small leak on the heater core then coolant can collect in the vent system. I would run the a/c on a warm day and look for water draining from the vehicle around where the dash is located to check the drain line. As far as your air cabin filter most are located behind the glove box. You usually need to remove the glove box to get to the filter.

IS THERE A CABIN FILTER ON MY 2006 CHEVROLET SILVERADO ?IS THIS WHY WHEN MY TRUCK IS CLOSED UP IT SMELLS LIKE MOLD OR MUSTT.AND WHEN I TURN ON MY HEAT AND DEFROST?


There are none on the 2006. There might be some moisture that entered the carpet in the vehicle at some time or another and caused a moldy or musty smell. There are several different air fresheners that can be added to the interior under the seat and in the carpets to help make is smell better.

SMELL IN SIDE THE CAR FROM AC


There's no cabin air filter on your vehicle. What happens is dust, lint or so-on gets trapped in the evaporator core for the a/c and starts to stink over time. Ask your local parts store for a de-oderizor spray for your a/c.

You may have a low charge of freon, most likely about 10 ounces, as far as the musty smell that is mold from the inside of the AC air box, they make various chemical tratments to cure this issue, but once the smell is there it can be diofficult to kill the mold that causes it.

AC-Smells


Have you replaced the a/c air filter under the dashboard? If not get one from the dealer or even a napa (napa part # is wix 24902) The filter is under the glove box. 4 eight millimeter screws hold the cover in place. You will be quite surprised at the quantity of mung these filters collect. I replace mine every two years regardless.
