check that a crankcase hose has not split or come off allowing fumes to enter the vent system.

Hi there,

How old is the car?

Ford recommend that you have the air con system "cleaned" once a year.

My dealer charged me 25 to do it.

You can get products from Halfords & "bomb" the system yourself.
