1997 Honda CRV 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 134000 miles
when I start the car there is a strong odor that is acidic and actually gags you. Note the airconditiontion and heater are turned off. If I turn the airconditioner on or turn the dial over to heat (even when vents are off-no fan) the smell is not noticable. The air conditioner does not give off cool air if I am Idleing and the engile lopes and clicks until I am on the gas pedal (only while I have airconditioner running not the heat) driving. I've stopped the car and opend the hood/no odor from engine.
