Sounds like you have a freon leak..Take it somewhere to check and while they have it let them check to make sure the air box drain is not clogged..The auto parts stores sell a spray for the air box..

Musty smell from A/C in 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT SE

Most common cause is water sitting in the bottom of the a/c heater box. Make sure the outside drain is open. There are spray products for using on the vents.

I have a musty smell coming out of the car. It seems to have something to do with the air conditioner. The air filters been changed and Lysol has been sprayed the vent a few times and it still smells....

Merely spritzing disinfectant is ineffective. You have to spray it into the high level air intake at the base of the windshield while running the A/C on high. Shut down the A/C and allow the disinfectant to attack mold in the ducts. As an added step, check the discharge end of the ducts for accumulated leaves and debris that prevent free flow and subsequent drying.

The heater has a musty smell,I suspect i need to

It sounds to me if you are having a "musty smell" then you might have a problem with your condensation drain line for you a/c system or a small leak on your heater core. If it is plugged then water will collect in the vent system causing a musty smell from the water not draining and if there is a small leak on the heater core then coolant can collect in the vent system. I would run the a/c on a warm day and look for water draining from the vehicle around where the dash is located to check the drain line. As far as your air cabin filter most are located behind the glove box. You usually need to remove the glove box to get to the filter.

Air conditioner wont cool off.

While your hood is open and engine running can you hear the air conditioner compressor kick on and off as the engines idleing. Check the fuse for the ac unit. And worst case it could be your compressor witch can be pretty spendy.
