Problem with my 1999 chevy malibu 3.1 Repairs done prior = replaced engine about 1100 miles prior.
Question = I have a electrical smell when I turned on the heater blower motor, it works but it smelled, after awhile the smell went away, the vehicle had not been used for about 2 weeks, is it time to replace the motor and is it easy to replace, I have knowledge of cars. More than a back yard mechanic.
Answer: It very well could be the motor is going out, something is stuck in the fan cage, the resistor is starting to burn up(very common), or possibly drawing air/smell from outside the car/under hood. The blower is not very difficult. Under the passenger side of the dash, 3 bolts. The resistor is more difficult. Next to the blower, closer to the firewall. The bolt(s) that are up against the firewall are difficult to get to. You need a 5.5mm universal to help make a little easier.
2002 Chevy Malibu. Question = My AC will work when I have it set for fresh air but when I set it to recirculate I can only run the fan on 1 or it will shut down. Is there a cabin air filter on this vehicle that may be clogged and causing this problem.
Answer: I need a little more info. Do you mean the fan only runs on speed 1, and not any other? Does the fan run on all speeds, just no airflow?
