2 seconds of stink?
I keep forgetting to ask about this... but for some reason (since we picked it up in june) There is a 2 - 3 second stink that comes out of the vents just after start. This only happens if it has sat for at least a few hours.

It reeks too... like chemicals + BO? or feet? not even sure how to describe it. Goes away very fast but its always there.

I would consult the service department. I do not have this issue.

I used to have a 3rd gen 4 runner and every time I was on an incline and giving it gas it would smell like sulfur. Granted, it wasn't on start up, but man, did that stink.

Also, there was a TSB on that, so it was rectified at a certain point.

I used to get the same smell every time I turned the a/c on. I replaced the air filter and it did not help. It only comes on w/ the a/c for the first few seconds.

A friend of mine had the same exact problem, turned-out to be his bad breath and the A-C was blowing it back in his face. :)
