How to remove mold from air conditioner

Bill, I would be really tempted to take the system apart and bleach it.
You probably do not want to do that. Dealerships and good detailing shops offer A/C mold and mildew services and normally guaranteed. I will post some other methods used by Tech.s and others that they say work and are not expensive to do. Do change your interior filters for sure if your car is equipped.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

AWESOME a real camaro problem.
strong odor of gas because the gas isn't getting burned
caused from backfire. backfiring because the spark isnt sparking when its supposed to.
problems could be bad spark plug wires , bad plugs , bad ignition parts.
your gonna need to check wires for bad spots, check ignition coils and stuff like that. if all that stuff is ok, then your problems have to do with inside the engine. jumped time etc.
