AC-Funny smell when car slows or stopped.

When the AC is on in my car and my car slows down or is at a stop, a funny smells begins to permiate through the vents. I think it's exahust, but I'm not sure. I have to either turn the AC off or hit the button to only circulate the air inside. Can you tell me what's wrong and what I need to do?

I think you may need to chnge your cabin air filter if it smells like mildew or a musty type smell, its located under the hood by the windshield on those I believe.

Lack of power,idles high,oil smells like gas,shifts funnymakes some type of pop,engine temp increases at stop


The oil smells like gas so most likely you have a bad head gasket. That will cause they car to overheat at stops and that will cause a funny smell. If it is blowing smoke that smells sweat then most likely it is your head gasket.

Lacking power, funny smell near exhaust and sputters and feels like it is going to stall when stopping for a red light.


Rotten egg smell is usually a bad converter. sweet smell is antifreeze meaning blown head gasket or worse.

I have a 2000 Dodge Intrepid that smells funny when I turn on the AC. I have looked it up and the forums say to change the Cabin Air Filter. I can't find where the filter is?!


You do not have a cabin filter....Two things......you need to check (freon preasure) you may have a freon leak from the AC evap coil behind the instrrment panel,the smell is AC freon pag oil from the AC system, it smells funny. Or you may have mildew build up on your evap coil there is a spray to disinfect the coil.Check auto zone or pep boys....Good luck my friend
