As it says I washed engine bay drove home. Went out just before and well...no heat actually very little tiny bit of heat and stinks of engine bay through vents. Tryed temp up down aircon on and off and well yeah all smell no heat. It's an au ghia with climate control...what could have happened? I never sprayed anything directly just from a distance. Couldn't see any loose hoses...but it was dark.


All comments appreciated! Thanks

Not sure on the AU but on my EB its on the passenger side near the firewall theres a green and black plastic hose. By memory the black hose connects to the manifold and green to the heater tap control. Check the vacume hoses are in place. If you only knocked the heater vacume hose off the engine will run the same.

Well it was all coincidence. Blend door motor flap got stuck and heater guy just reset the cc and the smell was the degreaser stuck in vents. So $20 later it's all beautiful
