To clarify, the blower motor stops pushing air every once in a while?
When it's acting up, if you change the setting to a different blower speed does it make any difference?
That sounds like the brushes in the blower motor are heating up and shutting the blower off. The blower motor is probably going bad.
Would you like a diagram that shows how to replace it?
There isn't much out there anymore because of the year model. This diagram is all that is available.
It's on the firewall in the engine compartment.
You might replace the resistor while you are at it. They tend to be the cause of blower motors going bad. It's right on the outside of the blower housing.
This is all that AllData publishes on it. Let me see if maybe Motor has a better diagram.
Sure. What else do you have?
Here is a better diagram for the blower motor.
That definitely sounds like it is off time. Is it possible the wrong distributor was installed? I've seen that before.
1. Disconnect the CMP sensor.2. If the engine runs good at that point, remove the distributor rotor.3. Check the top of the vane cup for a "6" or an "8". This is not the "8" or "6" that the distributor is aligned to during installation.4. If a "6" is present, the wrong distributor, one for a 6 cylinder engine has been installed in this 8 cylinder engine.
Do you have an obdII scan tool to check the timing? This engine doesn't normally come with a timing mark to be able to check it with a timing light.
I have seen people put timing covers with timing marks on them before though, so if you look at your timing cover, just behind the harmonic balancer pulley, can you see a timing mark? It should be in the area I marked on this picture.
The CMP is right on top of the engine. #1 on this picture.
Cam position sensor. Sorry. Mechanics and their acronyms...
The vane cup is inside of the housing of the distributor. The part under the rotor.
Any way you can attach the pictures here on just answer?
Yes, that's fine. Just keep posting every few days and it will stay open.
I'm in no rush. I just like to help.
I just wanted to check and see if you needed any additional information.
Did you find that it was it off time before?
