Is this smell coming from the vents or from the engine ?

Yes from vents after a short time it goes away but still a pain


I was thinking your vehicle had a cabin air filter but could not found one for your vehicle. Do not know were they are located on your vehicle but you may want to check the outside air vents to make sure nothing has gotten in it and is causing your problem. And if that is not it suggest getting some air fresheners that clip on your vents.


also try and burn it out with the heater on hot for a while...

So, I think that is one of those bad Chrysler things because we rented a T&C and it always smelled like sweat ( or a nasty sour smell ) when the air conditioner was running. And my Gma has a Wrangler Unlimited and it does the exact same thing.
