Question about 1990 Chevrolet Lumina APV
The blower motor in my 1990 Chevy Lumina van went out and i don't know where it is located or if its got a bolt on wheel or a press on wheel.
On my '95 Trans Sport (I don;t think theere's any difference - under the hood - look about the middle of the firewall near the top. You'll see the motor & outer housing. There are 4 screws in the housing, but don't know if disconnecting & removing the screws will allow you withdraw the blower assy on the engine side of the firewall.
For me, I checked there was volts at the blower electrical connector.
There was, so I took a soft hammer and whacked the motor casing a few times. It started to turn, but with a squeel. So I whacked it more, the squeel lessened & the motor speeded up. So I just continued whacking from different directions until I seemed to have aligned things - max speed, no squeel. Seems to be working 100% now (for the time being).
If no volts at the motor connector, try whacking the blower relay at the upper portion of the firewall about a foot to the left of the blower. This worked as a temporary fix on my old '91 APV. Eventually it failed for good. The new relay fried in short order. Had to put in a higher Amps one. Also check the relay connector, mine was corroded out and had to be replaced as well.
