Your septic system could be backed up and that is why you are smelling a foul smell. The best thing to do is to call a septic system business and have them come out and take a look at your septic system, if you think that is what is causing the foul smell.

Why would a Chemical smell be coming from ac vents after evaporator and expansion valve replaced in 1992 acura legend?

Changing ac components under the hood should not cause a chemical smell. If the smell changes by changing the air settings from recirculate to fresh, then there may be some chemicals on the outside of the parts. It is also possible that you damaged a part of the heater core system and the smell is antifreeze.


Pump Your Own Septic Tank?

Many people have septic tanks, but few give the pumping much thought. However, septic tank pumping is something that should be done on a regular basis, obviously more often in a larger family home. However, if you have a lot of land you are able to pump your septic tank out on your own, with no smell to bother you. Two septic tanks will decompose the contents for several months, and then it will slowly release into your predetermined septic field. As the contents are decomposed already and seeped out slowly, there is no discernible smell or problem, as long as it is not too near to a water source.
