Re: Flex Fan question
Well, I would say the theory is more fact. However, don't think changing to a flex fan is going to do wonders, or actually be noticeable in the power/mileage department.
Flex fans are also very suseptible to water damage in deep water crossings.....REP-T!!!! If they go, you can probably kiss the radiator goodbye as well, maybe other items.
As to the problem here, how is your idle, is it at normal range? could it be bumped up a bit?
Have you put new AC refrigerant in lately? This will increase the efficiency of your AC, making this low idle, poor AC cooling better.
Is your radiator clear of obstructions in the front, so the fan can do its job at idle? Has your radiator been flushed/filled lately?
You do have the stock fan shroud on, correct? You have not played around with changing thermostats?
