Possible leaves or other debris in blower wheel from intake vent, you maybe able to clear it out by finding the heater box drain vent on the firewall and making sure it isn't clogged. Take a small thing like a straw and poke it into the vent tube[ careful there may also be water trapped inside] , that should give the blockage a path to get out. If that dosen't fix it, the blower motor may have to be removed to clean the debris out. good luck.

Sounds like the fan motor is shot...or the fan impeller itself is rubbing on something...more than likely..the motor is shot and you will need to replace it

My ac/heat in 97 grand prix does not work. before it stoped working, it made a loud noise when ever I turned it on as though the fan was rubbing against something. now it does noyhing at all. what could...


If it's just not blowing the blower could have worn out or something such as a mouse could have gotten in the fan and stopped it.
If the line on the compressor is getting cold then the compressor is working.

Noise like something is hitting with the fan, but theres nothing there and the noise still going


could be fan motor making the noise, or the fan blades could be rubbing against fan housing (shroud)

Fan motor very loud at low speeds


sounds like something inside blower fan that should not be there , higher speed causes outward force inside so that whatever is in there is forced against the blades and therefore is not as loud
