Your fan is not loose.  The shroud could be warped, broken, or missing screws and beating against your fan when it turns on.  If you are not mechanically inclined, I recommend letting the pros handle this problem.  You will be looking at the cost of the parts and a half hour to an hours worth of labor.

2006 Toyota Hybrid Highlander, Everything sounding and driving fine until pulled up to a drive thru line with foot still on brake, car seemed to start "missing" (old school) running rough, then a loud


this fan noise may be the coolant fan doing the job of cooling the radiator when there is no air flow through the radiator as in standing in a line or at lights. IN a drive through line you would have the window down and so the noise came to your attention when the fan cut in. However have it checked out by an accredited repair shop to put your mind at rest.

My 2001 Pontiac Montana has loud noise while it idles. I was told it was the transmission mount. It seems to sound rattly while it shifts gears. Also, if I just ride around the blocks it seems to get hot....


I doubt the cooling problem is either. The most common reason for running hot at slow speeds is not enough air coming thru the radiator. Either the cooling fan is not coming on, or there is a blockage in the radiator.
And the loud noise could be a mount. You may want to get a second opinion before having the repair done.

My 2003 chrysler 300 m special is over heating. the water level says its got plenty of water. the temperature gauge will drop when i turn the heater on


Coolant in the resevoir doesn't tell you what is in the system,
if you don't have vacuum when the engine cools off.

Do you have coolant flow thru the radiator,is the
thermostat stuck?

Are the fans coming on?

Is it difficult to change out the radiator fan, or bracket. I noticed when idling the fan turns on and a bad rattling noise is made and then stops when fan cut off.


It seems that the radiator fan is hitting against the frame and so there is noise and vibration when the fan comes on. Shut down engine and check on the blades, see if there was any damage that would have changed the alignment or postion of the fan. If so you will need to remove and reset the fan. If the bearings or blades are seen to be faulty , replace them before the radiator is damaged.

Hello:
I would carefully inspect all areas of your fan and housing. My only guess is perhaps a bolt or nut wasn't properly secured, or a foreign object was left in there by accident, and it ended up getting tossed around a bit

They should kick in at 218 to 220 degrees,but then they should go off by them selves ,make sure there is no air in the cooling system,and maybe change the coolant sensor,and thermostat,if this problem persist,the radiator would most likely be the problem,if the cooling fans are coming on,it is important they cut off on there own also,this means the engine(radiator)are cooling down,if the cooling fans do not cut off,there is still another problem

2002 Suzuki xl7 Mysterious Overheating Issue


Most Suzukis A/C systems will cut out when the engine tempurature is too high (to reduce the load on the engine). Also, in this condition, when the A/C compressor cuts out, the A/C thermo fan (electric - in front of the condensor) may come on ( to try and cool the engine). Combined with the fact that your temp gage says the engine is hot, I would be checking your cooling system very closely. It could be as simple as leaves blocking the air flow through the radiator (between the condensor and radiator), or as serious as the internal cores of the radiator being blocked (different sorts of coolant being used can sometimes produce solid matter that can do this).

2006 Radiator Problem


1st what temperature thermostat got installed,also make sure it wasnt put in backwards,if ok start your car let it run when the temperature rise is the fans kicking on to cool the radiator,if they are as soon as they kick on ,with a rag squeeze the top radiator hose,caution it will be hot,you should lose pressure when the fans kick on in the hose it means the thermostat is opening,if ok, check bottom hose to see if you feel antifreeze running thru to let you know its circulating,if not its your waterpump,one thing you can do is when the car is cooled down take off radiator cap and squeeze bottom hose quick 4 times in a row to make sure you dont have an air pocket,if this helps please vote me a fix ya
