    I have a 2005 DC and get a slight odor in the interior. It's been going on for about 6 months now. I checked everywhere and have found no obvious leaks. Any suggestions?

    You do know this thread will probably get you some knucklehead responses. Is it worse with the blower on ?

    Well aware of that, but at this point it's driving me nuts!
    I still get it when the fan / ac is off!

    Did you spill some gas in the cab? Do you drive with the re-circ on? if not, you should.

    after looking at your previous threads, i saw this. which was a little over 6 onths ago when you said the problem started...

    Is it possible that whatever you used to remove the paint spilled on your interior, or went down inside your door? I wouldn't think that it would linger this long, but just a thought.

    Good point, but I removed the decals prior to install.
