If it is an electric fan, then it doesn't have a clutch. The fan thermostat switch might be stuck in the closed position, sending power to the fan motor regardless of coolant temperature./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif
OK, Jon, if it is a clutch fan, then it should spin all the time the engine runs. Just to check if it is ok, with the engine off, try to spin the fan by hand. It should spin but it will be stiff if the clutch is good. If it spins freely, the clutch is bad and needs replacement./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif My moonguy-in-chief/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gifof cooling says that the fan WILL run initially upon cold engine start, and then it should de-clutch in a very short time.....less than a minute.....and when you try to turn it by hand, it should feel "syrupy"....like the blades were in syrup./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif Can you tell that moonguy/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif hasn't had his breakfast yet?/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif
I never believe any statistics unless my moonguys /wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif made 'em up themselves.
