Question about Ford Expedition

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Expedition Eddie Bauer 2wd 5.4L. I was driving down the road the other day w/o any air or heat turned on, and a foul smell started coming out of the vents where the ac and heater air come out from. It smelled kinda like when you let the air out of a tire. There was also some kind of smoke or steam coming out from the same vents. What could that be from.

Something near the a/c vent (under your hood) started to burn or burnt something stuck in there like leaves or plastic etc. check your lines and fuels, make sure nothing's leaking or dried up.

    It was leaking water/condensation onto the ground a week before the foul smell. But it did not smell like burning plastic or leaves.

You have a leak in your heate core, located behind the dash on the passenger side. Common problem, I have the same vehicle and had the same problem. Parts not that expensive, but many hours of labor. Dash has to be removed from vehicle!

I am getting a acrid smell out of the vents when the heat is on. 2002 Ford Expedition, Eddie Bauer.


The first thing i would do is change the cabin air filter. If the smell is something like rotten eggs, it may be a catalytic convertor issue. if this is the case, you should have a check engine light on. Also check your battery and see if it swollen. if it is it may be releasing gasses
