Question about 1995 Honda Passport
Bought a 95 Honda Passport a couple of years back for a New England winter beater. From the get go, the fan would make a loud rumbling if I turned it on to the third position or higher. Just this morning, it stopped altogether. Can anyone tell me from the symptom, what the problem might be? I'd bring it back to the garage but he's shut down this week visiting his kid at Harvard. I think I paid his tuition with my last visit.
Fan motors are vulnerable to junk falling into vents, fluff and debris being sucked in with air, as well as mice dragging nesting material in and setting up house inside squirrel cage. THis happens alot. Also, fans usually have a clip of some sort that has been added at one spot around the edge to balance the wheel during rotation. If this clip falls off, or an object causes a crack, or debris falls into the fan housing, the resulting imbalance will make noise! Fans are also easy to remove and check for trash or damage. Remove the fan motor and inspect for these or any other faults. COuld be a worn shaft bearing that's causing the vibration or rumble. Should be able to lay fan in floorboard, plug in and turn on. Hold the edge of the fan to stabilize it, and observe its operation out of the housing if no defects are found visually. Hope this helps you. TT
