Can you describe the smell? Chaka consistent ba pag naka-on ang ac?

^Ano pina-service mo sa ac last time sis? Kase yung sa evaporator, pinapalinis lang naman yon para mawala ang smell. But there may be another cause ha. Yung luma naming car kaya naman nagkaganon before was because na-Ondoy kame eh. Nung naayos na ang engine and all, napansin nga namin na hinde maganda ang smell ng ac.

It may need cleaning or cabin filter replacement. The kulob smell is caused by left over water from the AC. Mostly sakit ng late model na toyota.

Anyway, try to put the AC in fan mode a few minutes before turning off the engine.

Also to eliminate the foul smell, start your car. turn on AC full blast. turn on air recirculate button to off (this will allow outside air to go inside the AC) spray lysol on the air intake grilles (near the wiper area). Leave your windows open for at least 10 minutes.

every year pinapa rust check ko, then pianapa prof cleaning ko rin sya, every week nililinis ng asawa ko labas at loob kahit di ko madalas gamitin. pinapa check din namin every year, saka chine-check ang breaks every 6 months, and since 4 ang season dito may summer tire at winter tire kami.

^ depende sa kotse.

May iba every 5k km or 3 months, whichever comes first. May iba every 10k km or 6 months, whichever comes first.

Best to check yoir car's manula for the preventive maintenance schedule.
