So when my car gets going for a little while, right by my feet it gets REALLY hot, like hot air is blowing from the vents. Does anybody else have this? If so, how do i fix it? when my feet sweat they stink. NOT GOOD!

If you are feeling hot air blowing on your feet, you probably have the vent open. If so, then change it to circurlate the air around. If that's not what it is, you are probably just feeling the heat through the firewall. I know in my teg, I tend to feel a little bit of the engine heat by my feet, but not enough to make my feet sweat though.

ya the vents are closed, and it's on cold. Do your cd players produce alot of heat? i thought that might be it too.

naw, not cd players, and if they did, you'd prolly smell buring wires. Hmm... did you upgrade your exhaust system? That's the only thing I can come up with

i get the same heat from that area as well.....

to whoever started this thread.. when that happens and you stop.. get out of the car, and reach down there and tocuh stuff that it could be.... floor, vent system, etc.... theres no use guessing, your hand can tell you

hmmm, i should have mentioned that some of my heat shield is gone from when i put in my short shifter, so that gets hot. I put my hand back there and my cd player was WAY hot, like OW! but i dunno, it hasnt been AS BAD lately with the real hot feeling, next time i go to wyoming i'll pay more attention. That;s the bi weekly joy ride in the teg.

I haven't done any mods to my shifter. I can't believe how hot it gets. There's a metal bar that goes under the carpet behind the console, i feel very hot air coming through that. does having the car lowered have any affect you think?

I think I know what all of you are talking about, my console and the that whole area around under the radio all the way back to the e-brake gets really hot. I think what it is is an exhaust leak that you aren't noiticing. Even if you can't hear it what it might be doing is blowing strait heat onto the bottom of the car making it hot like that. Just a guess
