I just replaced mine on a 97 cav z24 on 01/24/09. In the passenger side, remove the bottom panel that is under the glove box. On the blower motor (its circular and black you can't miss it) look for a white plug that connects to it (should be about 1/4 of an inch away from the firewall). The white plug is held to the blower by 2 5.5mm screws. Remove those 2 screws (there is one screw on each side of the plug and opposite of eachother), separate the wiring from it, connect it to the new part and replace it back in. It is a simple procedure thankfully. **You must have some sleek and small tools for the removal of the 5.5mm screws. There is extrely limited room and can't be done with a convential socket wrench or screw driver.** Let me know if you need more help with it.

the blower motor resistor is At Fault.each level of fan controler needs more voltage replacement should be very cost freindly. The above answer is correct. It is more than likely the Resistor Pack. They are not that expensive, especially if you can find one at a salvage yard. The hard part is finding it. Try and look in the component location section. You may find the location there. I would suspect that if you have it replaced at a dealership, it may run as high as $200. Most of this will be labor. Try removing the glove box and look around behind it. Good hunting. the location of this part is like all resistors for heating mounts to heater duct box. this being passenger side close to fire wallunder dash with two screws holding inplace close to blower motor

1995 Chevy cavalier Z24 Why does your car run hot when you turn off your heater?

The heater core is basically a small radiator located inside your car. If your "real" radiator isn't working quite as it should, then the heater can carry some of that load. Then if you turn the heater off the engine will run hot when it's only got the bad radiator left to cool it.

The heater core is plugged. The thermostat is stuck closed. Antifreeze/coolant level is low. The water pump is not working properly. Check the cheapest things first. Check fluid levels. See if the fluid is circulating well. If okay, replace thermostat. If still cold replace heater core.
