your aircon vent open?
i mean there's a vent that allows aircon to circulate within the car or allow air from outside to come in..

Air con smell is somewhat sourish..
and it should be constant.

Could be mold at your evaporator coils, have it checked at pro-car aircon workshop/ cleaned with chemical wash should take care of the prob.

Mine did.

Good luck.

Don't think so pal.. I swapped for a new A/C filter during my last major servicing (40K), a while (Maybe 1-2K) later the same sourish smell occurs everytime I start up my car and on the A/C. Went back to Toyota (50K) and feedback, smell gone, now close to 1K, start again.. mad.gif

I wonder what could be the problem, if instead of the sourish smell, it was some burnt smell that last for a few secs. Thanks.

Hi Bros,

You might want to test this method which I have been using for years .

Turn up the air-con temp to High - wind up all window - of course you are out of the car.

Let the warm air circulate for 5-10 mins within the car.

This will dry up any mold along the air-con system.


Give a try - of course you still need to change your air-con filter 1-2 years period.

I also have the sourish smell before.

Was it due to the air refresher? It happened when I start the car with air con at 1.
I did the full blast before, but it is a bit irritating to do every time tho.


BTW, I tried the OWS before. No use. I suspect the mold too.
