1999 isuzu rodeo AC/Heater blower making noise

Sounds like EXACTLY what you described (I've had that happen before). There is a leaf (or similar plastic/natural object) in your fan blower. This is located under the dashboard, typically under (or most easily accessed from) the passenger floorboard. If lucky and like mine, it was a few bolts (3 or 4) to take the cover off (with the blower attached), and all kinds of dirt, and a big leaf, fell out. They get in when the outer air vents are open. Good luck!

Blower motor has a noise like a leaf is in the blade

It is very possible that the blower motor squirrel cage housing has leaves in it, they get in there from the air intake for the system at the base of the windshield. Remove the blower motor from the housing and clean out the leaves. These leaves also pose a fire hazard and I've seen that a few times, the heat source is the blower motor speed dropping resistor in the air duct near the blower motor squirrel cage housing, it can ignite the leaves, this can cause at the very least smoke coming out the vents, which can be a little exiting on the freeway.

Have grinding noise in dash repeat over and over. sounds like CD trying to recycle but no CD inside and no cassette tape. it only comes on when ign switch on, no sound when key switch on access

I bet you have a leaf or leaves inside the heater blower compartment. The blower motor fan is always turning slowly even though the AC or fan is turned off to provide for ventilation. See if the grinding noise changes when you turn the AC fan on or off.

I hear a flutter sound when my air conditioner is running. Sounds like leafs fluttering, but looked under hood and couldn't see any. What could this be. Been like this over a week now, friend said it was...

Your friend is probably correct in that it's a leaf or debris of some sort. You may have to remove the blower motor to get it out it may actually have worked its way to the blower motor. Unfortunately at that point the only option.

Sounds like leaf stuck in the heater fan. How do I

If you can access the heater motor easily, take it out and get whatever it is out of there. Otherwise, you can try sticking the end of a leaf blower (no joke) against the floor vent under the dash and it may dislodge it.
Generally though after a while whatever is stuck will come apart and disappear on it's own.

Craftsman leaf blower won't start has new carb also has spark sounds like it might start but won't , feels like it might be losing compression is that a problem with craftsman leaf blowers

If your oil/gas mixture had been inadequate in past, it would have worn out the piston rings, causing it to loose compression. Try to measure the compression if its within range.

Can anyone give me some instructions to add a leaf spring kit to my 2002 4X4 V6 Ext.Cab Tacoma?

This should be pretty close for you since most add a spring(s) are pretty much the same.

Note: Check U-Bolt length prior to disassembly, Longer U-Bolts may be required.
1. Park the vehicle on flat level ground. Set the emergency brake and block the tires.
2. Raise the vehicle so that the tires slightly touch the ground. Support the frame rails using jack
3. Remove the U-Bolts from one side only. Remove the spring eye bolts and remove the leaf spring
from the vehicle.
4. Place 2 C-Clamps around the leaf spring as shown in Photo #1. Tighten C-Clamps against the
leaf spring.
5. With C-Clamps tightened onto leaf spring, remove the center tie bolt using a pair of vice grips to
hold the head of the bolt. “Slowly” remove the C-Clamps to release the spring tension.
6. Note the location of the tie bolt hole in the add-a-leaf. If the hole is not centered, measure the factory
spring to determine the long end and short end. Be sure to install the add-a-leaf with the
long end towards the long end of the leaf spring. Install the new add-a-leaf onto the “bottom” of
new leaf spring. If installing more than one leaf per side, install the longest first, then the shortest.
7. Use a screw driver to line up the tie bolt hole in the leaves. It is recommended to leave the screwdriver
in to help keep the leaves aligned as you tighten the C-Clamps. Tighten until there is
enough space to install the new tie bolt. With tie bolt installed, tighten the nut by hand. Then continue
to tighten the C-Clamps. Repeat this process until leaves are pulled together. See diagram
8. Tighten the center tie bolt to torque specifications provided.
9. Reinstall leaf spring into the vehicle. Install U-bolts. Repeat this process on the opposite side.
Torque Specifications:
3/8” Tie Bolt = 17 Ft. Lbs.
7/16” Tie Bolt = 27 Ft. Lbs.
1/2” Tie Bolt = 41 Ft. Lbs.

Blower Fan only works on 4, makes a bad grinding noise

The fan speed resistor will cause this fault if it has failed. I'd take a guess and say that the water buildup in the heater box may have damaged the resistor, and possibly the fan motor if it's making noise. It could also be a leaf or something stuck in the fan making the noise, thing can get sucked in there when the system is set to recirc. Not sure of location, but if you pop into a mechanic or the Mitsi dealer and ask them to show you the location I'm sure they should give you that info without charging you for it. At least i'd hope that was the case!
