The ac pulley clutch is controlled by a coil behind the pulley and the clutch snaps together when the ac is turned on.. If the smell is coming from that area then there is a short in the coil and it will have to be replaced. If the compressor shaft can still be turned by hand then there will be no need to replace the compressor or go into the gas system as it can be done from the front of the compressor in car

Changed coil and now uses alot more gas and smells terrible now

You may have a bad module under the coilpack. Did you apply white lithium grease to the bottom of the coil when you installes it? You may heve another bad coilpack which burned out due to a bad module underneath it.

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 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

Chevy silverado heater stinks

There is a fan control module mounted in the air plenum that is known for going bad.Check the connector where it plug's in under the case below the glove box for a burnt connection.Usually the connectors will melt but it can still be bad where it goe's into case.It need's airflow to cool the resistor,s for the differant blower speeds.

Radiator/Heater Coil Issue on 2002 Chevrolet Blazer

It is very possible that your heater CORE is bad. You will smell a sweet odor of antifreeze inside your vehicle if it is leaking, and possibly feel for a wet spot on the floor boards. Need to replace heater core.

Air condition problem

It might be because recent owners smoked cigarettes in the vehicle. Also, the AC vents may have a little mold which can cause a bad smell until the air flows through.
