Check your fan. You have air flow problems. If you don't have a fan clutch look at the electrical fan problems.

What type of smell is it? maybe the belt is slipping on the compressor pulley due to the clutch field shorting out, also check the 10 amp fuse for the A/C in the fuse box under the hood and see if it's blown, that will cause the car to run hot if the fans are not working properly.

Fuel smell inside ford 2002 explorere when running air


Hey man odds are you have a small fuel leak under the hood probably like a pinhole in a fuel line. When you turn on the ac you are pulling air from the front of the vehicle in turn pulling in the fuel smell. Find and stop the leak and that should get rid of the smell in the cab when the ac is running.

You may want to have your fan clutch checked. If the fan on your water pump does not spin very hard when the vehicle is idleing than it doesn't draw air through the condenser and that air keeps the condenser cooler plus it keeps the pressure down on the high side of the ac system. leave comment.
