Found the heater motor
After work today I went out and I call it the dog house took that off it has the radio,air condition control,ashtray,hazzard button. Took that out I see the motor now. turned the defrost nob and the fan started moving but then stopped, so I took my finger spun it and started moving again. I let the car run for about 30 minutes when I shut it off due to the sleet and the dark. I can hear the antifreeze bubbling in the def vent so it is getting hot and trying to work. I lifted the hood and pulled both levers toward the front of the car like you stated. I will be going out today and trying to see if I can free up the fan motor or take it out. I looked on utube and it stated I might have to buy a new motor w/ squirral cage because mine is squeeking and stopping. I don't know if it's do to sitting for 10 yrs and not being used or it just went bad?
