Is my fan motor shot? How tough of a job is swapping that out? Is there anything else that it could be? Thanks
I just recently changed the blower motor resistor after having a similar problem.
This thread describes my experience with my Automatic Climate Control. But even if you have 'manual' controls, you will still have a resistor. If so, you are in luck-- new replacement resistors are only about $20.

First test your fan by applying 12V to it. If it comes on, then most likely the resistor is bad. The resistor sits on top of the heater box at the passenger side of the firewall, tucked under the fuse panel. Toughest part is moving the panel out of the way to get to it.
