stinky air on startup...

the past 2 days when i start my truck in the morning the air vents put out a old dusty stale smell instead of the nice clean leathery smell my truck has always had
WTF?
is there a filter or something for the air system that needs changing?
I didnt see anything in the book but i might have missed it

Thats seems odd to me, I've never heard of there being no cabin filter to filter the incoming air.

It prob stinks due to him leaving the vents closed while parked and dampness getting in the vents and sitting there creating mold/mildew, therefore the stench...
