Question about 2006 Chevrolet HHR

Diagnosing a blower that began ticking and then stopped

Today my blower started making a ticking noise and then stopped completely. Only very slight output when traveling at speed. Didn't stop immediatly but after ticking for ~5 minutes. No noise suggesting fan is rotating. Any ideas? What do I start checking first?
Thanks,
Rob

    I have the same problem. Though the ticking happened for some time before it stopped working all together. I replaced the blower resistor, but no change. I unplugged the power to the blower, and there was indeed water in there. I connected a 12 volt booster to the blower and it worked fine, so the problem exists between that connection and the dash control. All fuses are fine and the relay works. Anyone have a solution? I'm pretty much to the point of trading it in.

Valve tap cause


Most engines now use hydraulic lifters and they can leak a little, this causes space between then lifter and the push rod. This results in a tapping noise that goes away when they get warm or fill back up.

OK. The noise you are hearing is the recirculation flap motor. It could be what is causing the condensation. Easy way to check in after the noise has stopped push the recirculation button on the AC controls to see if the noise happens. If the motor is bad and the flap isn't closing you could be getting moisture from the outside air. As far as the check engine light goes there is no relation. 2 completely different systems. The flap motor would probably run you a couple hundred of dollars. The check engine light could be anything.

I have a 1998 Cavalier (147,000 miles) that has made a ticking noise when I start it. However, revving the engine will quiet the noise before driving. Recently, it began making a extremely loud grinding...


unfortunately at 140,000 miles much like humans parts start to wear... now you can try to flush the oil system...I DON"T RECOMMEND IT.... I have seen engines tear apart from engine oil flushes.... drain refill the oil/filter with new oil and an additive may help, or pin down the noise to what lifter is going south and have it replaced... may end up being a very expensive repair depending on what they find when they open the engine up with high mileage...or just continue driving it untill it completely wipes out... I do belive its a hydraulic lifter that is not pumping up causing the tick and if so they usually last a long long time noisey.

No heat


check blower motor resistor its a little chip thats usually next to the blower motor. the same thing happened to me i bought a $160 motor replaced it and nothing, so i tried the $20 resistor and that did it i wish i would have tried the resistor first but you live you learn.

Ticking under the hood.


I kind of had the same problem with my car, the dealer kept saying it was nothing wrong with the vehicle and that the ticking noise would fix itself electronically. Wrong, it was my valves needed adjustment and that ticking noise was never going to be fixed electronically.

if it's a top end tick from the engine. probably because oil ran down and it just needs to lubricate the head again.
