Question about 2003 Mazda Tribute
Our 03 Mazda Tribute seems to be blowing less than ice cold air. It's 101 right now so I understand that impacts the coolness of the car, but even when it's cooler, we have a hard time feeling like the A/C is doing it's full job.
I think the problem is that, even though we have the switch on Max A/C, it seems like it's pulling in outside air. I could smell the driver in front of me smoking the other day. We are always smelling outside smells and I think that's why the air isn't as cold - it's not recirculating the air inside.
Is this a problem with the panel or, as someone suggested, might it be the vacuum line? I have no idea how to check the line as I don't even know where it is. Someone said it's next to the firewall, but I have no idea where that is, either.
What do you think it is? I'd love to avoid taking it in if it's something we can figure out at home. TIA!
There will be a button or lever in the dash next to the ac controls that will have a symbol like an arrow going back over itself
if that doesn't work then the problem will be to find what has happened
some sometimes it is a simple cable , other times a vacuum operate actuator so that will mean looking up under the dash to find and fix

Testimonial: "thanks for clearing things i would try ur suggestion"
check for a cracked head that smoke you see is probably antifreeze coming out of the coolant trench in the block itself or could just be a bad gasket on your head

I had the same problem last year with my rx8, I smelt gas inside the cabin, and every time I parked in the garage it would smell strongly of gas. I tried injector cleaner and everything, but nothing helped. About 4 months after i started to notice the smell, one of my fuel injectors blew, I believe the small was coming from the crack in it, I would suggest you get you injectors checked, After the blow, I got it fixed, they rebuilt the injector for about $300 cad. and it runs great now,
Hoped this helps
