* Fan operation can be checked by spinning the fan by hand.
* A noticeable wobble or any blade that is not in the same plane as the rest indicates that replacement is in order. The fan can also be checked by removing it and laying it on a flat surface. If it is straight, all the blades should touch the surface. Never attempt to straighten a damaged cooling fan. Bending it back into shape might seem easier (and cheaper) than replacing it, but doing so is risky. Whenever metal is bent, it is weakened.
* Fan clutches use a fluid-filled chamber (usually silicone) to turn the fan. Obviously, loss of the drive fluid will render the fan useless.
* One of the simplest checks is to visually inspect the fan clutch for signs of fluid loss.
* Oily streaks radiating outward from the hub shaft mean fluid has leaked out past the bearing seal.
* Most fan clutches offer a slight amount of resistance if turned by hand when the engine is cold. They offer drag when the engine is hot. If the fan freewheels easily hot or cold, replace the clutch.
* Another check that should be made is to push the tip of a fan blade in and out. Any visible looseness in the shaft bearing means the fan clutch should be replaced.
* Fan blades are balanced at the time of manufacture but can be bent if handled carelessly.
* Likewise, fan clutches are machined very accurately to run true. However, rough handling at the time of pump replacement causes nicks and dents on the mounting faces. This can cause the fan blade to be installed crookedly. Serious trouble might follow soon after the car is back in service.
* Therefore, handle fan clutches and blades with care and be sure to file away any nicks, burrs, or dents someone else might have caused. Obviously, if any fins have been broken off the fan clutch, it must be replaced.

Why is my 2005 Nissan Titan overheating in traffic?


Check to be sure that the fan shroud is intact in order to allow the fan to properly draw air through the radiator. Ensure that the radiator and A/C condenser cores are not clogged up with debris that can impede air flow. If these are all okay, you may need to replace the fan clutch as it may not be working correctly.

Check your fan clutch and make sure the radiator fins and condensor are clean so air flows freely. Also check the catalytic converter for restrictions. Hope this helps.

Motor fan is extremely loud!!


It is likely your fan clutch has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
Fan clutches are engineered to improve the vehicle’s cooling system efficiency. The clutch engages the fan at low speeds when additional cooling is needed. At high speeds the clutch disengages the fan, removing the load against the engine and allowing the engine to run more efficiently.
There are two types of fan clutches, non-thermal and thermal. Non-thermal fan clutches engage the fan based on the shaft speed of the water pump. Thermal fan clutches engage the fan based on a bi-metal thermostatic coil, which senses the under hood temperature.

It will look like this...

2003 Trailblazer loses power, I am getting codes P1271 and P1271p/d


#PIT3138A: 02-05 Chevrolet, Buick, Oldsmobile and GMC Mid-Sized Utilities Reduced Power Light On and DTC P1680 P1221 and/or P1271 Stored in the PCM - kw fan clutch SES light power MIL 4.2 LL8 - (Nov 1, 2004) 
The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom described in the PI.
Condition/Concern:
Reduced power light on and DTC P1680 P1221 and/or P1271 stored in the PCM 
Recommendation/Instructions:
Monitor the 5V reference to the Accelerator Pedal Position ( APP ) sensor, circuit 1274, using Peak Min/Max on a Fluke 87. Refer to Si document 1454678 for the 5V reference schematics. Command the fan clutch control "on" with the Tech 2 at 50%. If when commanding the fan clutch on, the 5V reverence spikes to battery voltage, the concern is the 5V reference shorted to battery voltage intermittently inside cooling fan clutch. Replace the fan clutch to repair this concern. 

Please follow this diagnosis process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed. If these steps do not resolve the condition, please contact GM TAC for further diagnostic assistance.
Models:
(02 - 05 Chevrolet Trailblazer and Trailblazer EXT) and (02 - 05 GMC Envoy, Envoy XL and Envoy XUV ) and (02 - 05 Buick Rainier) and (02 - 04 Oldsmobile Bravada)

05 Silverado overheating


the conclusive evidence for fan clutch is this:
if the engine temperature begins to drop while the car is moving, you've got a bad fan clutch. Is the radiator clogged with deposits?
