If it is a musty or moldy small.General Motors makes has a kit that will eliminate the smell.There is a bulletin and the number is 99-01-39-004C.If you go to the dealership they should have this on hand.It contains a spray coating for the evaporator core and an after blow feature that will enable the blower to dry the evaporator after the vehicle is shut off to dry the evaporator.
If this is not the smell then it could be the heater core starting to leak.This would be more of a sweet smell and eventually will fog up your windshield.Hope this helps.Let me know if you need any more help.Good luck.

Most common cause is water sitting in the bottom of the a/c heater box. Make sure the outside drain is open. There are spray products for using on the vents.

Smell comes thru air vent.

You might have both. The fresh air intake is under the windshield wipers, that vent takes in the fresh air from outside. The filter is usually in the rear seat section on vans and suvs, somewhere, sometimes up front under the dash. You can switch your ac or fresh air control to recirculate and it will cut off the outside air. We always do it on dusty roads and dead skunks. Hope this helps.

Sounds like the heater core may have sprung a leak of coolant--although, there should be the sweet smell of antifreeze. If the heater hoses are original, they may be the cause of the leak due to rotted ends. In any case, the heater/air conditioner case will need to be opened, cleaned and repaired. You may need to replace all under-dash vent hoses to get rid of all the smell. Good luck!

There is a bad musky smell that comes out of vents.when i turn on.i thought it was my heater coil./evoprator? but i got heat? i want to get rid of that smell.

Under the cowl on the passenger side (where the hood and windshield meet) there may either be a cabin air filter or just a mesh screen. If it has a filter, then replace it as that's probably the cause. If it's a mesh screen, then most likely it's allowed stuff into the vent and has caused the drain on the vent to clog and is most likely the cause of the smell. I'm not sure where the actual drain will be on your car. You could also install a filter in place of the mesh screen as well.
