    Just got my Tacoma about a week ago. 2005 Double Cab and I think the previous owner kept his dog in the car since 2005. The smell is "slap you in the face" strong. Everything else is in perfect condition.

    I have tried - airing it out (opening doors for 3 hours), windows down all night, Blue Coral carpet cleaner and odor eliminator, carpet cleaning, airing out (again), vinegar and water mix sprayed onto carpet, Baking Soda'ed the entire inside (left for 24 hours), carpet cleaned again, Baking Soda fridge packs (x2). Crushed Charcoal in bowl (x2). Drove to Elizabeth City (est 50 miles) with all windows down and sunroof open and air turned on going 70+ mph and then back doing the same thing.

    EDIT: The very first thing I did was remove the cabin filter. That bad boy was brand spankin new. No smell at all.

    The smell still persits...

    I am open to any ideas that you might have, aside from torching the truck. I am game but my wife said no :(.

    I called the local dealership and they can get me a new carpet to the tune of $596!! Found another dealership that can get same part number shipped for $430. I am leaning towards that if nothing else works.

    Oh yea - OZIUM SUCKS!!!!!

    I power washed my truck inside one time after a hellacious camping trip with my dogs and monsoon like weather. Soap, power washer, and then I bought seat covers!

    Someone had a post awhile back for aftermarket carpet. Can't remember where it was but I am pretty sure it was alot cheaper than that!
    Search around maybe you will find something. I think it was in a discussion about rubber floor mats.

    I believe I have seen all the discussions about carpet replacements. All links that are mentioned take me to places that have aftermarket carpet kits for the Standard and the Access Cab. Nothing for the Double Cab :mad:. That doesn't mean I wont stop looking though.

    I actually found two gray Double Cabs (2007 and 2008) at junkyards in NJ and MN but both sites say the glass is broken and the weather has done its damage to the carpet.

    We had an M5 that unfortunately was ungaraged for 1.5 years, and not driven enough, (dont got a garage anymore....it s a 3rd bedroom now)
    Mice got in the heater and did their thing on the seats, floormats and vents, Not to mention in the engine compartment. It frickin REEKED in there. It made me nauseous.
    This stuff worked for me. It has a convincing website,all scientific and shit, with lots o' stories. and Its not too expensive. Not compared to your plan 'D'.... :]
    Long story longer, We sold the BMW and the problem really seemed to be resolved.
    BTWIdid look at other urine eliminating sprays too, and this one seemed to be quite a bit ahead of the others. They make it for their own company primarily, but it worked so good that they decided t share it....yada,yada,yada. they have a $20.00 bottle. all you need is a sprayer.

    Good luck with that!!!

    I am not sure if this would be any different, but there is no urine or fecal smell. It is just dog. I would think that would be easier to take care of but it is turning out to a quite elusive odoriforous emination.

    And take a clean shop rag, soak it in Fabreeze and leave it under the seat.

    and/or
    Take a couple of used dryer sheets and leave them under the seats.

    BTW: the best treatment for leather is "Lexol." Easy to find at Harness or farm supply stores. Cheap and effective. Leaves a smell almost like New Leather. Love it!

    Might check with a local detailer that advertises ozone odor elimination. No personal experience with it but know companies that use them in smoke damaged homes.

    Just throwing it out there... good luck

    well the website says it works on all type of nastiness. Vomit, urine skunk, feces, etc...

    here you go. and btw ....No, I am not affiliated with this company at all. The shit works tho..... you might want to try it. just sayin'. Maybe in conjunction with the leather treatment.

    • SCOE 10X is the only odor eliminator that eliminates all three components of odor which permanently eliminates any biological or organic odor.
    • SCOE 10X permanently eliminates odor in seconds not hours or days. SCOE 10X is as effective removing stains as it is eliminating odor.

    • SCOE 10X is completely non-toxic, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, environmentally friendly and very safe to use. SCOE 10X contains no biocidal properties whatsoever.
    • SCOE 10X is safe to use indoors or outdoors on any animal or plant life; including being used directly on you or your pet.

    What The "Other" Odor Eliminator Companies Fail To Reveal
    1. Odor is More than Just "Odor Molecules"
    There are THREE DISTINCT COMPONENTS that make up biological odor:

    • A biological excretion or decomposition; such as urine, feces, vomit, sweat, skunk spray, meat, fish, cigarette smoke, etc.
    • Odor causing bacteria; feeding on the biological excretion, bacteria rapidly multiply and produce lots and lots of odor molecules.
    • Odor molecules; what your nose actually smells, are carried by biological excretions and are rapidly produced by odor causing bacteria feeding on the biological excretion.

    All three odor components must be eliminated by an odor elimination product to permanently eliminate a biological odor. If these three components are not eliminated, the odor will naturally return.

    2. Odor Cannot Be Permanently Eliminated From A Distance
    All three components of odor must be eliminated for odor to be permanently eliminated. Therefore, an odor eliminator must come in contact with the biological excretion. This cannot be done from a distance; even if the distance is very small. It is just physically and chemically impossible.
    This is why room sprays and aerosols, or odor absorbers do not permanently eliminate odor. These types of products never make direct contact with the real source of the odor.
    How many so called "odor elimination" products have you already tried where the odor returns? Here's reality: If the odor eliminator product doesn't eliminate all three odor components or doesn't come in direct contact with the biological excretion, the odor will naturally return.

    Why SCOE 10X Works

    SCOE 10X is unlike and very different from all the other so-called odor eliminators. SCOE 10X is a beneficial probiotic odor eliminator. What this means is, SCOE 10X simultaneously performs the three separate odor eliminating functions that are needed to permanently eliminate the three components of biological odor :


    • First function: SCOE 10X immediately captures and destroys odor molecules.
    • Second function: SCOE 10X attacks and destroys the odor causing bacteria's food source: the biological excretion.
    • Third function: due to SCOE 10X eliminating the biological excretion, the natural result is the odor causing bacteria, now with-out food, starve to death. Consequently, no more odor molecules are produced.
    Simply put, SCOE 10X eliminates the bacterial food source (the odor causing bacteria die) and destroys the odor molecules (the odor is eliminated), thereby permanently eliminating the biological odor.

    SCOE 10X is Proven Safe
    Unlike other odor eliminators (especially any containing alcohol), SCOE 10X is proven to be environmentally friendly, non-toxic and very safe to use. You can even safely spray SCOE 10X directly onto your pet! We have extensively tested SCOE 10X for effectiveness and safety in our laboratory and consequently through everyday use by BioFOG’s service division. Our service division stays in business because SCOE 10X is extremely safe and really works! SCOE 10X is safe to use on any surface and all colorfast fabrics and leather.

    Who is BioFOG?
    BioFOG, Inc. develops and manufactures proprietary odor elimination products like SCOE 10X at our Alpharetta, Georgia facilities. If you would like more information about BioFOG, Inc. click here. If you happen to be in our neighborhood, please stop on in, we don't mind. We would love to demonstrate to you how effective SCOE 10X is at eliminating problem odor.
    SCOE 10X will permanently eliminate:

    • Human urine, feces, vomit, perspiration, body and shoe odor
    • Dog, cat, pet, raccoon, pig, horse, cow, any animal's urine, feces and vomit odor
    • Cigarette smoke odor
    • Rotting meat, fish, poultry and garbage odor
    • Skunk spray odor
    • Gasoline/Fuel odor
    Concentrate
    SCOE 10X
    is a concentrate. One (1) ounce of SCOE 10X makes ten (10) ounces of Ready-To-Use product. Yes, this means you will have to mix the product with water. (This avoids you paying a company to add water to a concentrate and the added shipping costs for the weight of water.) SCOE 10X has a shelf-life of 2 years after dilution.

    Shipping Charges
    Speaking of shipping charges, we do not charge "Handling Fees" like other companies. We believe adding "Handling Fees" or "Processing Fees" are not part of doing good business. Therefore, your shipping charges are exactly what UPS or the U.S. Postal Service charges us. For example, the U.S. Postal Service charges $4.60 for the "Starter Kit" (shown at the upper left of this page) to be shipped Priority Mail to anywhere in the U.S. And that's exactly what you pay for the shipping charge. Orders placed before 2:00 pm EST, Monday thru Friday (excluding holidays), are shipped the same day. Overnight, Saturday deliveries are available if the order is placed by calling our office at 678-648-4015.

    What Size Bottle Do I Buy?
    The size of bottle that you buy will always be determined by the size of the problem. If it's a small problem, like a litter box or diaper pail, then buy the "Starter Kit". A big problem, like dog urine covering a basement floor or a skunk got in your house and sprayed, then buy the 64 oz. size bottle (makes 5 gallons). If you're in the carpet cleaning business, then the 5.5 gallon pail (makes 55 gallons) would be the right choice. SCOE 10X is packaged in 8 concentrate sizes:

    This stuff works well.

    Also, old time order absorber: vinegar in a bowl (don't drive with it obviously) let it waft around in truck

    I have sprayed Lysol in vents too.

    You might want to have heating system on circulate,
    Hold your breath
    spray your favorite smell neutralizer in vents, down by feet, under seat, etc.
    Exit vehicle and let circulate for a few minutes while circulating with windows rolled up.

    Airing out, drying out should remove the stink.

    Peek around and sure nothing stinking is in there from the previous owner or pet (one dirty sock can pack a puch)

    Lexol is good, that's what I use on my leather, however I don't think it will get rid of the smell.

    I would do what KCin HBCA said and have an ozone treatment done. They basically put an ozone machine in your vehicle and close it up for a few hours.
