Question AC issue, bad smell and mist windows!

Hey guys,

Today I got a freaking bad problem, my windows got all mist.

I have noticed issues that could be related to this are.

- AC started to blow not enough cold air
- When I turn the car of and start it, the air that blows in doesnt smell good, like warm old air from the engine.

Does someone know what the problem could be?

Question

Could be the issue,whats the next step for me to do, check the system for leaks?

No its a used car.

And one more thing, it realy rained pretty hard today, maybe some water got in somewhere?

Check the seal on the lower section of your windshield. Water can leak down into the cabin, cause the AC blower to squeak/eventually fail and the passenger carpet to be wet. That water can start to rot in your AC system...which might be what you are smelling.
