Also, the cold may have locked up the motor. My cars blower was making a nasty noise this morning for a few. Though I have owned cars with no heat in the past. Bundle up and wear a scarf so your breath doesn't fog up the window! What year escape for that matter. The new it is, the more suseptible to the extreme cold it will be. Electronics and very cold don't mix well.
Schmiggz the oil that lubes the bearing in the fan has frozen. it wont work until it has thowed out.
try moving through the vent options, do you hear a flap moving around in the dash? won't be much noise, you will have to really listen. If not, pop the hood and check the fuses there too. There will be a couple of them for ac/blower/logicon. Ultimately, I am thinking that Fox is right though. Lube doesnt 'freeze" so much as it gets stupid thick,, further everything contracts in the cold, creating a greater gap in the motor if it has a brushless motor. Making it harder for the motor itself to turn as well.when i switched on the fan theres not even a noise of that thing trying to go. its just dead
Anyone use RE-11 tires on their car?
I don't think ZII are available in my size though... I'll have to double check.I did when they first came out (on a NA Miata) they are a REALLY good tire (mostly spirited driving and a few autocross days) the only real disadvantage is they don't last very long (but what HP tires do)
I actually run the Dunlop ZII's these days, I got them super cheap and very little/if any difference in performance. Probably mostly in my head but overall grip goes to the RE-11 but the Dunlop's have a better/more progressive feeling when i am about to break loose.
Why do you say that? Soft sidewall?I ran them on my old 370Z. It's a great tire if you have a large diameter wheel. Probably some of the best performing tires in the wet too. 18in wheels and below I would go with some star specs though.
Well then you recall incorrectly.I recall you saying it was too competitive and stressful for you.
