Update Coming Soon
I have a 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan with 63,500 miles. I have owned it for approximately 4 mos. It appears to be running well, although I question the previous owners diligence in upkeep and maintenance. I have noticed a distinct odor when turning on the heater and now the AC. Oddly, the odor coming from the vents when either the heat or AC is on is reminiscent of a barn or a zoo! I have tried numerous air fresheners and similar options but to no avail. It is becoming rather obnoxious. It appears to disappear after the heat or AC has ran for some time. Obviously the issue is not limited to fumes stemming from the AC since the odor takes place with the heater as well. My concern is that this odor may be the result of fumes coming from some kind of chemical or fluid that is activated when the engine is first turned on. Furthermore, if this odor is related to a chemical or fluid in the car it is blowing directly in our faces, thus the concern regarding toxicity. So, is there any kind of smell coming off of car fluids that is similar to barn smells? It is an odd question, no doubt, but it is an aggravating (and very noticeable) issue that I hope is not related to anything serious. Does this sound familiar at all?
