Q: Ac and heater blowing very lightly or not at all.

asked by on

A couple of days ago my car had a sort of flux in power I could hear the ac blowing but it would go down then blow hard again and then not and then it stopped blowing completely yesterday Today I checked the heating 40a fuse and pulled it out and plugged it in and the ac came back on but very lightly again Also when ever I change the speed (1-4) it's as if the speed is always one or less then that. I'm not sure if it's the blower motor itself the relay or another fuse Any ideas ?

My car has 220000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
