Hey Mistyrunner,

I noticed you have an 81' also. Ever had any heating or air conditioning problems? I'm hearing terrible noises when my heat goes on.

June

June, what kind of noise are you hearing? Does it only make noise with the blower(fan) on Med. or High speed? If so , then you probably have a blower motor going bad.
It could also be some kind of trash(leaves, paper, furry animal condo) inside the fan "cage", that is making a noise.
If it is kinda like a high pitched squeak/squeal, it will be the blower motor. If it sounds like a playing card in a bicycle wheel, it's probably trash.
Either way, the blower motor will need to come out to fix it. Hope this info helps.

Hey 91 Blessing,

I didn't have any noises but I replaced the original water pump,  lasted 24 years, and when that didn't solve the problem, I replaced the radiator..now, I can run the air.....no problem, and you may just need them to check your fluids for ac...and like adams apple said, some animal may have gotten in and decided to take up housekeeping, like little mice ....or you just may need to check your blower motors.....

Hope you find your noises!

Theresa

Hey Misty & Adams' Apple,

When I turn on the heat, air or defroster it makes a real loud noise, something like a motor running but not properly. It happens on med. or high. It also gets louder as I speed up. I got the car in 11/04 and never used the hear or air. Living in NY I need heat in the winter so I just park it. It also fogs up bad in the rain. So bad I can barely see when driving.

It does sound like I need to fix the blower motor. I'm going to take it to my guy just wanted to see if anyone had simliar problems. Thanks.

(Misty, thats OK I'm a C3 girl at heart, LOL)

JuneTongue

I'm hardly on the Vette Women's catagory forum, because they never seem to answer back........boring!! So, I go to the other forums and get/give info because the guy's are more interesting. All the guy's have a better sence of humor and know a lot. When I shop, I shop for vette parts. I'm just not into clothes, shoes, purses and dumb junk like most women.

Hey all ladies........I'm not trying to down women or anything like that. I would just like the women to talk more in this forum. Say for example, if you have had some type of car problem and ya got it fixed, tell us about it or a good tip on taking care of your vette.......maybe even a story about you & your vette.

How about it ladies?? Let's make this forum interesting! Who want's to go first??

Na! You won't have an army of women drivin' Vette's to your door......see what I mean??? Norbert, that's a good sence of humor!!

I can see why you wouldn't like purse's! Well......I like purses......I have to have more than one purse! Why??? Because I put "Tootie" in my purse. Toot goes everywhere with me. If you come to PF in June, you will get to meet Tootie & so will everyone else.

Yes Norbert, I wear clothes!    My shirt's have to have Vettes on them. My pants are plain and I only were Tennis Shoes. You could say that I am "eccentric" , but harmless with good morals!

Ok....

I don't shop for purses until the one I have is worn out.    I buy the smallest purse I can find that will hold my necessities because I hate carrying a purse!  I miss the days when all's I needed to carry was my wallet in my back pocket.  But as I've aged, I now need to carry medications and such.

I've only owned large dogs, so don't have a "Tootie" that will fit in my purse.  The last dog I had was a New Foundland.  She would hardly fit into a purse! 

I've always been "one of the guys", even as a child, and I like it that way.  I've never been a "girlie girl".  I wear jeans and ladie's tops.  I hate shoes and go barefoot as much as posible.  (A woman who hates shoes?  Is it possible?)  LOL!  My "dress up" clothes are black jeans, a nice top and black strappy high heeled sandals in summer, or cow"girl" boots in the winter.  I won't wear flats or pumps.  See?  I DO have a feminine side.  LOL  I like my hair long, I do wear eye makeup, and I keep my natural nails long and polished.  To sum it up....I fit the lady in the song:  My Kind of Girl.

I've been a car nut since my teens.  In high school I took auto mechanics class.  Only class I got straight A's.  Was the only girl in the class for 2 years.  I was right in my element.     I was also on a pit crew for a drag racer.  Spent every minute I could at the drag strip whether we were racing or not.  Stood on the corner at school with the guys talking cars.  Girls hated me!  LOL 

If I had a million dollars I would spend 1/3 at Home Depot, 1/3 at an electronics store, and 1/3 on cars!  That's my kind of shopping!

I've learned to get along with the ladies, but I still won't sit in the kitchen with them when the guys are in the living room watching football! 

I was 40 before I got my first Vette, a 1973.  I still own that Vette and it still needs a lot of work.  I've put all my money into my "show and go" 1972 Monte Carlo and into making the Vette mechanically sound.  For now we drive it half put together and ugly, but it's still a blast to drive!  As long as it's driveable, I'm happy with that until I get a few more dollars saved up to start putting it back together and making it nice.

There you have it!

Mickey

Alrighty, seems like we have some action going on here. I agree let's make this an interesting fun/forum. Anyhow, tried to start my vette today and it wouldn't startCry. My friend says the sparks plugs are probably cloggedConfused. Before starting I put in some Stablizer fliud because it sits a lot. Anyone know the best one and what's the best way to winterize these cars?

It's really my fault for not starting it more. I'm going to tow it to my mechanic soon. But nice to know what not to do.

(PS Mickey, got to admitt I love shoes. Give me a good shoe sale and I'm good to goSmile. Power to the cars too!Wink)

Got a battery charger?? If not, go invest in one. Plug that puppy in to an electrical outlet (you might need an extention cord if you can't reach it out to your car) then, take the negative (black) clamp from the charger and clamp it to the negative "-" terminal on your battery. Next, take the positive (red) clamp from the charger and clamp it to the positive "+" terminal on your battery. Watch the meter on the charger and when it looks like it's charged up, take the clamps off and try to start your car.
Hope this helps. It's cheaper than a tow.

If you have any more questions, just let me know, ok?
