I have a 2005 Stang, 4.6L and lovin it! My last Mustang was a Mustang II, back in the eighties, so I've been out of the Mustang picture for a while.
My question is why do I feel heat coming from under the dash, when the AC is off? It doesnt smell like engine heat, but kinda feels like engine heat, nor does it feel like the outside heat? It seems a vent is open or something, just not sure. I don't feel it when the AC is on. Is that just the way a Mustang is?

Please Educate

This is exactly how my mustang is as well and my 95 before this.

It's probably heat transferring through the floor pan from the exhaust, that's why it doesn't smell like engine heat.

Any ideas?

So nothing to worry about...Thanks! Any ideas on how to reduce the heat or eliminate completely? Perhaps some type of insulation?

Cabin Fever2 - Heat under dash

I thought I replied earlier, but I guess I didnt do something right...this is my second attempt.

I thank you for your replies. It seems there is nothing to worry about, but are there any ideas on how to reduce the heat? Perhaps something with the vents or insulation?

Any ideas?

Okay now I see my previous post?!!? It will take some time getting use to this..my apologies.
That sounds like a good idea! Thanks
