smell inside of the car, when the a/c is on.
It's only can be 2 things.
1- The a/c evaporator is leaking freon.
check if the air condition is not loosing freon.
2- The heater core is leaking antifreeze.
Check the level of the radiator, see if any visual leak on the heater core. or if there coolant under the car. about passanger side..
If you found repair as need.

I hope this can help to start diagnostic your problem.

Thank you for use fixya.

I owned a 2004 dodge ram 1500 hemi. When I'm driving and the A/C is on I can smell the fumes coming from the car or truck in front of me. Any suggestion on how to fix it?

most a/c system have a flap in the system that allows you to decide wether to get fresh air from outside or recirculate the air in the car. One is to stop you getting drowsey fromn any gasses getting into the car and the other is to get the cool air colder by recooling already cold air. Try closing the flap and see what happens

Catalistic converter can overheating the engine?

the Catalytic Converter do not work that way. its a filter system for all the bad fumes your car produces. inside the converter is a ceramic honeycomb structure. if this ceramic is clogged then all the heat and gasses your car produces will backflow and heat up your engine

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee oil dipstick tube has vacuum

The PCV system is supposed to pull vac on the crankcase to re-burn the fumes in the oil pan.
But your engine sounds like it has a vent problem via the air filter.

Check cooling system for presence of exhaust fumes. Your unit has head bolt issues and compression gasses enter cooling system. VERY expensive to repair correctly.

Air conditioner blows hot air . gauge shows full .

It needs to be re-gassed. Take the car to an Auto Mechanic to get the Air-Conditioning re-gassed. They might also need to check it for leaks to make sure the gas stays in.

Unwanted fumes gas in ford falcon futura

is the car on recirculate or fresh air? air from your aircon comes through the bottom of your front windscreen, make sure its clear and free of leaves or anything that can cause blockage to stop it from become damp inside the aircon ducts. if it is definately petrol fumes you may have an exhaust leaking from your engine bay, releasing the fumes into your cabin, that is the most common reason for petrol fumes in your aircon.
