Also I wonder what's up with the blower motor. I'd probably check and make sure nothing worked it's way in there. When I put a cabin filter in my svt (don't have them stock from the factory) you could see right down to the squirrel cage for the blower motor.

Maybe, but wouldn't the idle still kick up as that's a computerized function? And then there's still the issues of the cooling fans not kicking in when the A/C is turned on.

The blower is a matter of it heating up and getting out of round as far as I can tell. It will run a long time on 2, but not so long on 4. That looks easily replaceable so I'll just just do it.
