I have a 2001 Buick Park Ave that i inherited from my grandfather. The compressor makes a rattling sound when the car is running, i think it may be the clutch. The car has an automatic control panel for the HVAC unit. Like you set the temp and it keeps up by it self. When i turn on the system, at any temp, the compressor appears to turn on (u can feel the loss of power to the engine) and the rattle stops, but the blower motor does not turn on, even though the panel tells me that the motor is at full power. I just wanted to know what this could be, and if it was something i could do myself so i could at least get the blower motor and the heat working for the winter.
This is what came back from my engine light coming on and being diagnosed.

I ran seafoam through it in the gas tank and beat on it for a few days and the light went off for a week then came on again. Should I be putting in 91 octane? Will that help. The dealer put in new plugs and a coil and ran cleaner through the fuel injectors. then the light came on 2 months later. They say, they would need to take the top end apart and clean it good for $1000. Isn't there something else I could do?
is the transmission front or rear wheel drive?
Dome lights work - no fuse for reading lamps. does anyone know how to trouble shoot reading lamps?
