AC problem

Hi i have a question, I have a 02 chevy impala and when i turn on the ac it doesn’t blow the air, i would have to have the ac in 5 level to blow it at a 2 level, what could it be ? and how much would it cost to repair it?

Check to see if the air intake grill is clear. Check to see if air is coming out where it is not supposed to in the AC mode, like the defroster or floor duct.

Like most late model cars, your car uses a filter that filters the cabin air. If you have not replaced it yet, it is most likely pretty dirty by now. Costs about $10.
