jfreezn Posted July 9, 2005 Report Share Posted July 9, 2005 Well, I smelled it first but it was easy to find when I looked for it. Our 94 ETC has a long crack, from top to bottom on the blower box, and the AC system is sucking in fumes from the engine compartment! Thanks to this forum, I knew where to look. For those who missed this, the AC blower box is on the firewall in the engine compartment. My engine is a Northstar and this may make a difference. Now, the questions are, what is GM's liability in something like this. You can't smell carbon monoxide but there is a real possibility that someone could die if the wrong kind of fumes gets in the passenger compartment. And should the NHTSA be notified of each crack occurence. Would someone like to start a survey on the number of Cad owners who have found cracked blower boxes. The survey should ask for the year, model, type of engine, and what part of the country the car hails from. My car sold new in Minnesota but has been in Phoenix 10 of it's 12 years. I admit to have used the seat warmers but don't recall ever having to use the ELECTRIC front windshield defrost feature which draws so many amps that the software calls for a 1200 rpm idle in park! Thanks again for this forum. By the way, last year I left a donation in PayPal for the list owner, is that address still the same?
