Thanks for responding. I found a site that said that the condition I had was caused by low freon. I have a set of 134a gauges so I checked the pressure, it was showing about 30#, so I gradually added freon and checked the outlet temperature. I stopped adding freon at 35# as both sides had an outlet temp of 40 deg. The site I read this info on was an E46 site, different car but end results were the same. Thanks!

Have it cleaned then..

When running on cold, moisture builds up on the coils and these cause all manner of unpleasant bacteria so it's best to have the a/c serviced at that point..

To avoid it (or reduce the time it takes to stink), try switching your a/c to hot 10 mins before you park up the vehicle to dry the coils and thus prevent the build up of bacteria.
