Remove the pollen filter. Buy a Antibacterial ac flush. set ac to cold, put the recirculation switch on, open all vents, switch ac on full speed, set flush away inside car. All doors and windows must be closed. This will take 10mins. Replace pollen filter with a new one. The flush will kill all bugs and germs in the ac system and the car, curing the smell. Voicey UK

Disconnection your fan has 3-4 screws and check for a dead mouse or two and bits of dried grass. They like to build nest in there. If your car sits for extended amounts of time that seems to be when the animals call it home. It was not a pleasant job for me to get them out you just have to get rubber gloves and do it.

My 2002 Cadillac DeVille smells like gas when trying to start it.


If the smell is coming from the front under the hood area, have the fuel system checked for leaks. Possible injector/seal or fuel pressure regulator leak. Check for any emission hose/s disconnected as well under the hood that may supply fumes to the engine

Location of Turn Sugnal Relay 1990 Mitsubishi magna


It is under the dash. It is a flasher, not a relay. Usually on the back side of the fuse panel under the dash. It is round and has two or three tabs coming out of it.

AC-Smells


Have you replaced the a/c air filter under the dashboard? If not get one from the dealer or even a napa (napa part # is wix 24902) The filter is under the glove box. 4 eight millimeter screws hold the cover in place. You will be quite surprised at the quantity of mung these filters collect. I replace mine every two years regardless.
