GMC cabin air filter

Recommended Posts

I own a 1995 GMC Sierra. Before I purchased the truck it was owned by a farmer and subsequently the interior was extremely dirty all the time. It was detailed before I bought it and is surprisingly clean. However, when ever I have the heat on high I get a distinct smell of dirt and dust. Is there a cabin air filter i can replace? Or is it just all the dirt in the air ducts that is causing this? Thanks for any help.

I would not think a 1995 would have a cabin air filter, but I could be wrong. Someone else might chime in with some better info.

Now, the evap coil and heater plenum can get dirty and stink. Short of removing and cleaning, I have had good luck turning heater/a/c blower fan on high and spraying Lysol disinfectant spray right in the cowl grid (air intake), in front of the windshield. You can switch the selector modes and get all the air ducks.

Good luck.

I am pretty sure there is no filter in this system. About all you can do is remove the blower motor, and resistor and wash out what you can, then take the air hose and blow out the rest. It may help some, but you wont get it all.

Thanks for the help fellas. Ill see what I can do. Hopefully I won't even need to use the heater in truck for a while. Again... thanks for the info.

Nope no filter. The new trucks don't even have them. They have the slots, but no filter. I think only 99-04 Gm trucks have filters.

I am surprised that the newer vehicles don't have them. When I do PM's at work, the Sterlings have them and they are filthy to say the least. In fact, the air cleaners for the engine usually have a long way to go, but those cab air filters, well, I am surprised air can get through them.

We have a 99 Suburban and an 04 Silverado, neither one has a cabin filter.

99 Suburban was the classic style, I believe. Probably why it didn't have them. My 2000 Z71 had them and my 2002 2500HD has them. Maybe 2003 was the cut-off.

I remember that they are pretty expensive to change. I thought I paid over $50 for cabin filters.

I know this is true threw Ford, but if you contact the Dealer's parts department, they might have a kit you can buy and install for a cabin air filter in a veh. that did not have one from factory.

Good luck!

Where is the filter on a 00 Chev? Maybe I should take a look at mine!

There is a product called ozium I have used it with good success but you must use it sparingly, it can get very overwhelming.

Find the air intake for your HVAC system and put a short spray into it while on full. Not a miracle cure, or snake oil, but I have encountered positive results.

Good Luck.

    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
