AC blows rotten eggs smell ..HELP...please ..

Hello .. My 2014 laredo has something weird .. Everytime I use the ac it smells so bad that I can't breath I have to open the windows .

Having your son work on your car does not void your warranty.

Try this. Put the system on recirculate. Find the in cabin air intake and spray some Lysol in there for 5 or 10 seconds. If it helps, but does not totally get rid of the smell, do it again in a week.

Re: AC blows rotten eggs smell ..HELP...please ..

Instead of using lysol I would actually use a product like this:

A/C & Heater Duct Cleaner & Deodorizer (4 oz.) - INT760

The dealer can do a more thorough cleaning than you can at home, with it that new they should cover it under warranty. That happens sometimes if they sit on the lot a long time. When I got my Lexus I had this issue when it was new, it sat on the lot for like 9 months before I bought it. The dealer did an A/C induction service and it solved the problem. 2 years later this summer it was getting a little musty so I used the product I linked to above myself and it worked great.

Re: AC blows rotten eggs smell ..HELP...please ..

The brand of product really isn't important, I'd just go to your local auto parts store and buy whatever they have

Re: AC blows rotten eggs smell ..HELP...please ..

I took a new Explorer back to a dealer years ago with the same problem. The service manager assured me they had something to take care of it. About 15 minutes later the mechanic (this was pre technician) brought my car around and said he was finished. I asked him what he used and he held up the can of Lysol.

This was before somebody decided to take a similar concoction and package it as a specialty item at a bigger profit margin. The biggest advantage to Lysol is that most people probably have it, or Frabreeze already in the house.

I am confident that the specialty items that specify "Auto" will work at least as well.
