Many issues with my car.

Wheel bearings shouldn't wear that quickly. Possibly not installed correctly or another problem. The vents sound like the resistor is bad. There should be a resistor that controls the blower motor. Misfire could be a fouled plug, bad cable, bad coil (requiring a new single coil or coil pack as it may be). You can check to see if that cylinder is getting spark, if no it's the coil. You may want to invest a little cash to a reputable garage. In my experience its worth avoiding the time, frustration, and hastle of tracking down problems. Good luck!

'91 Buick LeSabre heater blower motor

Are you sure the blower motor is defective? If the blower motor resistor pack is bad the blower will not work. Have you applied 12 volts directly to the blower motor to verify it is bad? I have not replaced a blower motor on your particular car but it is usually a labor intensive repair. Depending on where you have it repaired the cost could be as little as $150 and up. Hard to say without actually doing it. Replacing the Resistor Pack is a fairly easy repair, so hopefully that is your problem.

i am looking for a place to plug in an extra plug under dash( blower motor does not run)

If its anything like a 95 model, that unused plug near the blower motor is used when setting the timing on the vehicle. It removes the ignition advance from the distributor. I would be careful about experimenting like that.
To troubleshoot your blower motor, go buy a cheap test light and unplug your motor plug. Connect the test light. Turn on your motor switch. If it lights when connected properly, the motor is bad. If not you have other issues. Could be a relay or resistor module. Just takes a little more troubleshooting.

Engine shakes when accelerates, lost power, Buick Park Avenue

Look for a bad coil pack. If you have the bank of three coils on the front passenger side of the motor, it is possible that one of them is going bad. This can be an intermittent problem since it failure is frequently heat related, and may not show up until the car is all heated up. It is simple enough to change one of these if you can figure out which one it is. There is a little device ( Spark detector) that can sense the sparks inside the wires. Get one and hold it close to each wire... away from the coils. The wire, that does not make the spark detector light up...is coming from the bad coil. (It is also possible that a spark plug wire is bad instead.) Good luck. Chip
