Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Regency

1 Answer

The blower motor for my heater only works about 10% of the time. I suspect the brushes in the motor are going. Do I have to tear apart my dash to change the heater/AC motor or can I access this in the engine compartment?

When I hit a bump the heater stop for a few seconds

Are you saying the blower motor stops working? That might be a sign of bad brushes in the blower motor? If that is the case, replace the blower motor. You could check the wiring connector for blower motor.
In the past, I have taken faulty blower motor apart, and those little brushes were wore down to the nub. A bump can cause the brushes to make better contact, or lose contact in your case.
Could be other issues, the blower motor needs voltage and ground. Just my opinion.

1997 S-10 V6 Vortex heater motor-where is it and how hard to replace?

By heater motor if you mean blower motor for the heater system, it is located at the right rear of the engine compartment, under the hood. You will need to possibly cut the rubber barrier around the motor (the round part that sticks out) to access the (5) 7mm bolts. You will probably need to remove the ECM (Engine Control Module) and bracket to completely remove. If you are having issues with the blower motor fan not working I would suspect the blower resistor assembly or the 6 wire connector going to it, before condemning the blower motor. If you mean the heater core by saying heater motor, then it is directly located beside the blower motor and is a lot more difficult to remove. The heater case will need to be separated, and there are hidden bolts located on the inside of the trucks cab.

On my 2002 S10 (chevy) My heater blower only works on high, do i replace the motor or the resister. Where is each one located.

My 2002 s10 did the same thing I went to the trouble tearing apart the dash panles on the floor but the part is right under the hood, passenger side on the firewall. 3 screws hold it and there's a plug attached. Takes 5 mins to fix. I lost 2 hours looking under the dash for it.

How long does it take to replace the heater core? Do you tear apart the dash to get it out? Or does it go another way?

its a big job-u need a shop manual-are u sure the core is the issue cause u may tear apart more than the dash--if u change it inspect blower motor and evaporator to stop future headaches

Where is the location of the heater blower motor on a 1994 saturn sl1? Do I have to tear the dash out?

No need to tear the dash out. The blower is located above the passenger's feet, below the glove compartment. You access it from underneath. Three small black bolts hold it on and there is a two wire electrical connector on the bottom that must be removed. The motor drops down with the fan blade attached. Should take about 5 or 10 minutes to remove.

I have a '93 SL2 and the interior is the same as an SL1 or 2 from '92, '93, '94 and maybe even a '95.

No heat on 1999 jeep wranger

hi pklilly
dave here

the best solution for this problem is to buy a new blower motor at the auto parts store or a used one at the wreckers and keep the receipt.
without tearing everything apart unplug the old blower and plug in the new one.
if it works tear the old one out and put the new one in.
if it does not work return the blower and get back to me.
this of course assumes you have checked the fuse (both sides) with a trouble light(continuity tester). if there is more than the blower running off the fuse just make sure whatever else is on the fuse is working

Blower for AC/Heater stopped working

if you can reach the blower motor, it could be a worn out carbon brush of the blower motor. if they are, buy a set of carbon brush, learn how to replace them and it would be back running in no time. by the way, when you pull out the carbon brush holder, make sure you dont interchange the position. you can put them back wards and what would happen is the rotation will be reversed. either you reversed the carbon brush holder or just simply interchange the wires that are coming to the motor. i hope i was able to help...
