    When I first turn on the heater or A/C fan there is a stinky odor from the vents ,probably has some bacteria in the evaporator, anyway to disinfect the system?

    thanks

    There is a product called Frigi-fresh from BG that works really well. You spray it into your HVAC air intake with the fan on full blast. Check around at some of your local car dealers. The first place I discovered it years ago was actually at my local Toyota dealer. I believe the part number is 708.
