When I turn the blower to the 3rd setting or higher, it makes a low pitch sound/vibration that I can feel in the gas pedal. Is my fan motor going? The pollen filter is fine. I did a search and came up empty.

It could be a bearing or a twig stuck in the blower fan and vibrating against it as it rotates. That's very strange that you can feel it in the pedal. I'd take out the filter and look at the fan motor. Maybe try rotating it and feeling for a bad bearing or have a helper turn the car on (engine off) and turn on the fan.

Removed the cabin /pollen filter. The motor looks okay. No debris. Turned on fan, still made low rumble sound. I'll check the price of a new one. That way when it craps out, I'll be prepared. Thanks guys.
