problem #1

May 102002

Taurus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,000 miles
There is a bad odor coming from air conditioning (A/C) unit caused by mold/mildew (from water that sits in blower box). Vehicle has been in to dealership four times without resolution to this problem. I am concerned about health consequences if this is not resolved. Dealer has used deodorizers in A/C unit and replaced cabin air filter, all to no avail.
