Aircondition STINKS


Recommended Posts


Ammonia = wonderful. When I first got my car, the aircon smelled like something had crawled in and died, a kid you not. I had to more or less flush out all the air conduits, and it more or less cleared the smell. Mind you, I work in a very smelly business.

Maybe, however, that is what is going on - the previous owner or Toyota flushed the vents with an ammonia based substance...

ok.. try these methods

- turn off your air-conditioner but leaving the fan on for about two minutes before you turn the car off or;

- check your cabin air filter or;

- run the heater for 10 mins or;

- check the evaporator drain hose, it might be clogged

Hey guys..do u guys have any idea why my rolla n a few other rolla's airconditioning sometimes stink when we turn them on??

Do any of u guys have a prob like that?

How do u solve it =(

tqs guys

you can buy a disinfected spray from supercheap. They should be around $20 (saw one @ a mechanic workshop)

so what you do is, spray it into the vents above the bonnet n also the air vents inside the car.

also it is recommended by Toyota to use the Air Condition at least 5 minutes each week.

I get the dampy smell (the same smell of your towel after you use it, but then leave it to dry on a chair without properly washing it)... goes away after a few minutes though... i always thought it was condensation
