My 03 engine fan clutch will keep the fan whirring loudly immediately after
startup, like an old Willys Jeep, even when it is cold out OR the engine is
cold. It lasts for about 1/2 mile before it settles down. I was told by the
dealer that this is NORMAL, due to the computer, ya da ya da ......I dont
remember it doing this when new 18000 miles ago...wassup with this....true
or false? Thanks
Yeah, it's pretty much normal. Mine seems to do it randomly during
the spring through fall.
The only thing to note, is that it's not the computer doing the
switching. It's a regular old clutch-fan.

When the radiator blows? I'd LOVE to hear how the fan clutch going
bad and the radiator blowing are related, do tell...
Or is it just troll season again? Thought this would have happened
when it was below zero and all the trolls were inside trying to get
away from the bitter cold, thought they'd all be back under bridges by
That's what I would call a catostrophic failure! I was thinking more
along the lines of just failing to work properly like mine did and it
locked up MORE than it should have been. Wouldn't be overheating in
