SOURCE: driving down gravels roads dust coming into cab

it sounds as if someone has removed the cabin air filter. to check the filter, remove the glove box - to do this, open the glove box, you will see two tabs on either side that stop it from opening any further. on the outside of the box, you will see two tabs that you pinch together and pull the stops out of the glove box. it will then flop all the way open. directly behind the glove box, you will see a small access door - aprox. 1" high 6" wide. open this by releasing the small tab on the left, it will then swing open and off.you should now be able to pull the filter carrier out. some of these trucks are equipped with 2 filters, once you pull the first one out the other slides from the right to the left then out. if these filters are damaged or dirty, replace them. pay attention to the air flow direction of filter, it is marked on the side of the filter. good luck!

Tip

Give you air filter a breather


The air filter on an engine is very important to the operation and the life of the engine. It protects the engine from unecessary wear due to grit and dust and keeps the air intake and fuel induction components clean. However, in doing so, it becomes clogged with the dirt that it stops and eventually restricts the amount of air available for the combustion mixture, increasing the fuel in a finely balanced ratio and increases fuel consumption.
To extend the life of an air filter, avoid driving directly behind a vehicle throwing up a lot of dust, let him get away so that you have clean air or pass him as quickly as you can do so safely. If you come across dust being blown across the road in front of you, relax your foot on the pedal to close the throttle and minimise the air being drawn into the intake, coast for those few seconds. Use this technique when vehicles passing from the front throw up dirt on gravel roads etc. and avoid trucks heavily loaded with sand that blows off the top of their load.
It does not sound like much, but can make a considerable difference in vehicle performance, efficiency, life and running costs.

How to keep gravel driveway from eroding


Yes sand and cement mixed with the gravel.

Another thing you can use is 'cold planings', (that is what it is called in the UK) and is what they skim off the top of the road when they are resurfacing. You will find it in various locations. Ask your local Roads Department.


Or you could use your gravel as a base, have it rolled and then asphalted (tarmacked).

The dust is everywhere inside. The dashboard is always covered...so are the seats. The dust is literally everywhere. When we have gone shopping, by the time we get home the shopping bags are even...


Are the vents open ? It shouldn't be to hard to locate where it's coming from, if your running your A/C then put the setting on interior recirculate not outside air (pulls outside air thru the fan). I could help out more but you didn't state the make model or year of your car.

MY FAN FOR THE HEATER AND AC WONT WORK


simple check...check the fuse for the motor. If that's good, look for an inline fuse or fusible link. Another possibility is that you have a bad fan control switch, or that there is a wire loose or broken there....check to make sure all ground wires are connected and not corroded. Final possibility is the fan motor is bad. If you drive in dusty areas (gravel roads), dust can inhibit electrical contacts, or bind up the fan shaft (becomes tacky and glue-like when damp). You can maybe clean with air and WD-40.
