From your description I would think that water got into the fresh air vents and down into the blower motor that has now burned out . Look there for your problem.

Will not start


It seems that something was burned out trying to make the starter turn. The problem could be the starter and/or the solenoid.

Go to youtube and enter, "how to check a starter" you may have to remove it to check it. I could tell you how. But it is better if you see how it's done for yourself. Also check the fuses.

Noise and burning smell from heater


Yeah.
Pine needles get into the heater box and clog the heater fan motor's "fan".
You also may have rodents in there,making nests.
The wife was smart to turn off the heater fan B-4 the fuse blew.

Heat sometimes works in 2003 envoy


First I recommend checking that your coolant level is good. Please check this cold so you don't risk getting burned. I have seen too many heater complaints where the coolant level was simply too low to fill the heater core. Next, you should check if the heater control valve is operating. I don't have any GM experience, but heater valves are often the cause of intermittent heater operation in many cars. Good luck!

Smell of burning oil out of heater vents


Have you checked under the hood,Mark? The heater commonly pulls outside air thru the vents and can get air coming up from the engine,so I'd look for a smell outside the car,under the hood.Let me know what you find.
You can alleviate it some by using the recycle air button on your heater,but you need to find the source quickly,so you don't have a fire. don-ohio (:^)

A/C and Heater Problem


Well,you eliminated the resistor,so it probably means the blower motor has shorted out.Either that or something has gotten into the blower wheel and jammed it. If you can bypass the resistor and just put 12 volts into the motor,do it.But don't hold it long,as a direct short can cause a fire without a fuse to blow for safety.
In other words,prepare to buy a new heater blower motor. don-ohio

I have a 1995 325is bmw. i was driving home and the needle went to red. the heat also stopped working the day prior. i also smelt a little antifreeze as well. can anyone help please.


If you dont have heat you definitely need to check your coolant level first. Better make sure to use the right coolant alot of BMWs take G-5 coolant. Then see if you can see water running out of the engine compartment onto the ground after you fill it. The water pump could be leaking. Check the radiator for leaks and make sure your hoses are not leaking if the floor inside has coolant seeping into the carpet your heater core could be leaking. If the water is not leaking you could have a bad fan clutch or a bad resistor on the fan motor or a burned out electric cooling fan. Or something wrong with the circuit for the coolant fan.

Cabin air filter is plugged. Replace and vacuum out housing. The smell is coming from the fan which is being over worked.

Sounds like you lost your blower motor and or blower/resistor components, have it tested by an reputable repair sho[p and have them give you an estimate to give you a heads up before fixing it.
Hope this works!!
