does it have a distinct odor? Like mildewy? Or gas or exhaust? If its mildew-y "smells like dirty gym socks"it could be mildew build up on the evaporator.

Replace the cabin air filter. Check your vehicle owner's manual for the location. I think it's in the engine compartment on the passenger side.

It smells mildewy like dirty gym socks so I will bleach the evaporator core and replace the cabin air filter. Thanks Bobby and RC
