Smells problem
2004 Toyota Avalon 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 53000 miles

I began noticing a terrible smell last week - I was not running the air conditioning. I just turned the car on and could smell what I would call a rank odor - not so much rotten eggs but a "bad compost" or moldy smell. Someone suggest I bring my car in to have the cabin filter changed, others say it is the new gas mixture?

Do you have an opinion or advise?

Most likely it's mold in your a/c system from a hole somewhere. It can be cleaned out but there will still be a small smell usually left over even after cleaning.
