Every time I turn on the air (heat or AC), on Level 1, and 2. I get a odd whistling sound coming from the vents. If I turn the fan on to 3, it turns off.

Seems like something that is spinning needs some grease or something. I just don't know what it is.

I would pull they cowel off and make sure there is not alot of stuff down in the air intake, but I have had it be the blower motor in the past.

Okay.. umm where is the cowel? Are you talking about stuff that could be in the air filter area?

It's the black piece between the hood and the windshield.

that is the blower motor, that is under the dash on passenger side, If that is making the noise, the yes, but I would pull up the cowell to check the air inlet since that is the usual cause.

And I can access that under the passenger side? Remove the floor mat, and some stuff above??

Oh man.. I am so not good with cars haha.
