This may not really be OT in AHR, after all, my car is parked in my garage,
part of my home. Maybe this is stretching it? :-). I don't know where else
I drive a 1993 Chevy Lumina with 100,000 miles. Runs better than new.
Lately, when I turn on my air blower in any mode, such as heating, air
conditioning, vent, it produces a blast of foul smelling air. After a
minute, the bad smell disappears.
Googling for this misbehavior points to mold produced by stagnant water in
the a/c evaporator.
I have tried disinfectant spray in the air-intake vent but now the car
smells of perfumed dirty socks.
Does anyone know of a simple way to get rid of this stink without tearing
the car apart?? Seems to be a common problem and thus of common interest.
Thanks, and my apologies.
