My yaris 2007 car ac stopped working before 2 months slowly , means sometimes work and some times doesnt work , and not at all . before 2 weeks i showed 2 car ac tachnicians both told to change control...


The best I can tell u is that the smell is from a leak at the evaporator or connections. I advise to get another opinion because it sounds like a lot of guesswork. if u get the work done, make sure the work comes with a warrantee! I gave all my customers warrantees for 20 years. That's part of the diagnostic business! Good Luck If u don't get a warrantee ,don't get the diagnosis or work done

When I run defrost, there is a bad moldy smell. Only happens on defrost setting. Is there a filter to change somewhere?


The condensation is not completely draining. You may want to see if it is plugged. Find the drain area in the engine compartment on the bottom of the firewall. Use an air compressor to blow air back through to clear it. I had a problem with that area which was a ford expedition design flaw. It was draining onto my O2 Sensor and damaging it. I had to make a bypass with a part form a GM truck.

You change Spark Plugs every 3 years
You change oil at least 4 times a year
You flush brake fluid every 2 years

You replace gas filter & air filter every 3 years
You replace belts every 5 or 6 years
You flush coolant every 3 years

Ac smell in 2009 Mercedes c300


Check drain and unclog if required.
Remove air cabin filter (see you tube for instructions). Make sure it is done in a clean place so no dust or dirt gets in while you do this.
Block Air Cabin filter opening with duct tape.
Set fan to 50% (3/4), temperature to minimum
AC must be OFF
Open hood and using a Spray bottle, spray half a bottle of Alcohol 70% into the air intake vents at bottom of windshield
Turn off fan
Let it sit for 30 to 60 min
Set temperature to max and fan to max
Open hood and using a Spray bottle, spray the second half (250ml) of a bottle of Alcohol 70% into the air intake vents at bottom of windshield.
Turn heater and fan OFF
Take off duct tape and replace the air cabin filter (new one is better)
If you don't take off the air cabin filter, a lot of the alcohol or disinfenctant (like Lysol) may be stuck in the filter causing an irritating smell.
Replace Air cabin filter if possible.

I have a 2005 Nissan Murano, when the AC or Heater is running it smells like ****. Any solutions?


Yes you need to change your in cabin filter. Wal-mart sells them for around 15$ if you buy the one from Nissan it is around 50$. You will find many recommendations for self install that say to take apart the dashboard and 7 or so screws. Skip that the easier solution is to slide out 2 hinge pins that hold the glove box in place they are located on the underside of the glove box. You will find there is a string that holds the detached glove box so don't yank too hard once the hinge pins are out. Support it if possible so it's not dangling in mid air. There are some clips that cover the flap that holds the filter in place a flat screw driver will make prying those easier. Note orientation on uninstall of old and reverse procedure with new filter. Reinstall flaps/clips then glove box. Viola Saved yourself 129$ dealer install..

Is there an a/c filter on the 1993 Honda Accord EX ?


There is no filter for the AC or heater in the 93 Accord. Air for the AC either recirculates from the passenger compartment or is drawn in through the vents below the wipers outside the car. You might try spraying something nice-smelling into those vents to see if it is drawn into the car while the AC is running, set to outside air.
Hope this is helpful.

Changed the 2 cabin air filters but bad odor still comes out vent


If you run your Air cond on recirculate always try using an air sanitizer in your return vent. Or switch your A/C to outside air flow for for half an hour and raise the rear of your sunroof panel to vent the stale air do this till the smell dissipates and then close he sunroof and reset the A/C to recirculate if desired.

Lost gas mileage please


Lost gas mileage. I would have to assume that you are not getting the require mile per gallon. For example If the car book say 32 miles per gallon. You are getting about 20 to 25 miles per gallon.
If you want to improve the your gas mileage then you have to do the required maintenance
Oil change every 3000 mile
tune up as required
Air filter
If the wiring spark plug wire is old and crack then it need to be replace.
If you park out side and the batteries is about 5 years old have it check
If you buy the car new, you will have a car book follow the maintenance routine.
If you have done all the maintenance and the gas mileage is low than recommended then take it to a shop to figure out if some thing is wrong or not preforming as it should.
I do hope this help you.

Routine Maintenance


I would change transmission fluid and differential fluids. check to see if it has a fuel filter also I know they stopped putting an inline filter somewhere around your year model and just has one in tank that doesnt have to be changed. you can also change air filter and inside cabin air filter located behind glove box . The spark plugs are platinum good for 100,000 then tune up needs to be done. plugs and wires, use only ac delco platinum plugs and ac delco wires. a little more expensive but way better to me than the others. they have coil packs so there is no distributor cap or button to replace.
