1989 chev s10 4.3 Heater blower does not always work

Last year found when it was cold outside and the truck was cold when starting the struck and switching on heater it would not come on, found if I tapped the heater fan casing it would then work fine.

So I'm thinking that the blower needs to be replaced? I know the heater core you have to go through the dashboard & glove compartment but being as I tap the heater casing would I be able to remove it from the other side in the engine at the firewall?

If its the blower motor you have to take it off from the outside theres no other way to remove it.

    you may be able to take the one in there out spray it down with wd 40 and fix it that way.its just worn is all. a new one should only run a bit over 30.00 but i agree you are going in the right direction

Window fogging

If it were a leaking heater core, the inside glass surface would have an oily film along with the fog.
It sounds like your fresh air intake is not working. You have to get fresh air from the outside to be able to get rid of the excess moisture inside the cabin. Or you have excessive moisture inside from a water leak that the system can't overcome.

Heater blower on van won't come on. Already replaced heater blower and checked fuses.

Check blower motor resistor make sure none of the spring's are broken, resistor sit next to blower motor in housing, also check blower motor relay for voltage, also sit over by blower motor outside of housing and last check voltage at blower motor switch.Hope this was very helpful,good luck.
