    Manure smell upon first start up from HVAC system

    Hello, first of all thanks in advance for any help or info given. Just picked up a 2013 xtr eco with 52000km last week friday (first Ford ever). Sunday morning noticed the manure smell upon first start up then it tapers off. By Tuesday morning it was getting so bad I had to roll the window down. I have looked at all the steps others have taken, and tried them myself (drying out evap, spraying lysol and vehicle deoderizer neutralizer in cabin air intake area, although not 100% sure I was in the right spot, did it with AC max and recirc hot and cold). I did notice the engine compartment to smell a little when the hood is lifted so i might wash the rad area next (maybe too many dead bugs). Anyone else find a solution for this as I would like to fix it myself as taking in my vehicle and leaving it with the dealer is a big pain in the a**. Also pics or detailed description of the cabin air intake would be appreciated. Thanks again.

    Maybe its recirculating an odor from the vehicle control operator?

    I think the smell is coming from the AC condenser.

    Turn the AC and fans on flat out, open all windows and spray some Lysol into the intake, usually does the trick, maybe something is decomposing in the vent system?

    Or perhaps the same valet that parked Jerry's car has been in yours?
