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?
