Question about 2000 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

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

Check drain and unclog if required.
Remove air cabin filter (see you tube for instructions). Make sure it is done in a clean place so no dust or dirt gets in while you do this.
Block Air Cabin filter opening with duct tape.
Set fan to 50% (3/4), temperature to minimum
AC must be OFF
Open hood and using a Spray bottle, spray half a bottle of Alcohol 70% into the air intake vents at bottom of windshield
Turn off fan
Let it sit for 30 to 60 min
Set temperature to max and fan to max
Open hood and using a Spray bottle, spray the second half (250ml) of a bottle of Alcohol 70% into the air intake vents at bottom of windshield.
Turn heater and fan OFF
Take off duct tape and replace the air cabin filter (new one is better)
If you don't take off the air cabin filter, a lot of the alcohol or disinfenctant (like Lysol) may be stuck in the filter causing an irritating smell.
Replace Air cabin filter if possible.

There usually is a vent option for recirculated or cabin air. Have you tried to change what setting it is on , you may need to clear cabin air. I am not familiar with this model , but cars are coming out now with cabin filters, they need to be changed depending on driving conditions ie dusty , dirty conditions need more changing

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.

Check to make sure that the cabin air filter has been changed. If not this would be great place to suspect.

How can I change cabin air filter?


Under the Kick Panel under the Dash on the Passenger Side, close to the Center Console. Get down on the Passenger side floorboard and look up under the dash. You will see a rectangle approximately 5 to 7 inches long by 1 to 2 inches wide on the underside of the Heat/AC duct work.
There may be a gate/covering that is easily removed.
The old Filter slides down and out. The new Filter slides up and in.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

SMELL IN SIDE THE CAR FROM AC


There's no cabin air filter on your vehicle. What happens is dust, lint or so-on gets trapped in the evaporator core for the a/c and starts to stink over time. Ask your local parts store for a de-oderizor spray for your a/c.

Possible the smell is coming from the bacteria living on your ac evapourator. You can buy a spray for this that you set off inside the vehicle. Follow the instructions on the tin.
