I have a 2001 pontiac aztek that has a lot of problems:
1.when i turn on my fan, it only works on the highest #, 4 or 5
2.when my wheels are slipping and when i need it the most, it shuts off or 'disables' the awd
3. change oil light turns on after i change the oil
4. it takes a long time to heat up

The first issue is probably a worn out blower motor which is usually the first part of the car which everything else is built around. actually not really that bad you just might have to move a few things out of the way. You may be able to test the motor, and switch with a multi metor...did I forget to say it may be the switch..probably not but worth a look.
The other two, and possibly all of the problems could be as simple as a charging system issue like bad connections and whatnot. With the complicated emmissions control and fuel injection computors even a slight issue with the charging system could cause all types of annoying problems that will probably get worse. The fuel trim is set by the computor and the computer is a learning type, where it changes trim settings slightly to optimise economy. If the computor and sensors are not communicating properly it could easily make your vehicle run slightly rich, and fuel cool itself accidentally. Fuel cooling isn't a function of the computor it would be a symptom of a problem that left unchecked could result in a computer meltdown.
I am a die hard optimist, on the outside, check the simple things first like ground connections, and what not. Assume it will be much worse. If you don't have a factory reccomended thermostat then that could keep it from warming up properly. So check that too. I haven't gotten too far into many azteks yet but mayby I'll look this stuff up for you.
