Why would a 2000 Toyota Camry smell as if a mouse is dead inside?

Have you changed the cabin air filter yet? It is located behind the glove compartment. If it gets clogged and damp it will stink. We changed one on a 2002 Lexus truck a few monthes back and not only was it clogged, but there were three dead mice stuck to it! I couldn't tell if they were blind however.

Check for oil leaks on the Camry. Especially look for oil on the exhaust, as the smell can come into the car.

Possible mouse nest in the heater box or duct work in the car.

Yes, a mouse can sense another mouse. They can see another mouse. They can smell another mouse. They can hear another mouse. They can also taste another mouse.

A week or thereabouts. Once it dries out completely, the smell will be gone.

Yes. It's not an overwhelmingly strong odor if they're dry, but you can smell them.

Depends if you scratch outside or inside your pants. If outside, no, if inside, if no smell, then no. If your hands have been inside your pants and they smell, wash.

Any time an air conditioner smells I tell people to try changing the in cabin air filter. most cars its behind your glove box and not costly. good luck.

Smell may be (heated) mouse dropping and urine. We found a mouse nest in the (and partially made from the) air filter. Open the air filter and check, mouse was still hiding down the air hose. This search was done in an attempt to find that sour smell.

If the smell of a VW Jetta is bad then there is a possibility of mold inside the vehicle. Water damage can cause bad smell. There can also be a chance of an animal crawling inside and dying. Check the vehicle thoroughly and clean with interior cleaners to rid the car of a smell.

If it's a sweet smell then its probably a heater core leaking antifreeze.

It depends if you have removed the mouse. If you have removed the mouse, then the odor should be gone the next day. Otherwise, it may take about a week for the smell to fade.

Because of the smell and yellow coloring. Mouse urine is very smelly, especially the male mouse urine.

The coolant temperature sensor has been an issue in these cars. Check it with for failure. The distributor has also been an issue. If the car has gas or if you can smell the fuel when it stalls then the problem is not fuel related. If you do not smell fuel you must do a fuel pressure test to see if that is the issue.
