Question about 2001 Mercury Villager
I think what you are seeing when you say the fan is turning is normal. It is a optical Illusion, surely it is turning, but is not engaged. I will tell you how to test this, but use "EXTREME CAUTION" when perform the test. Also were eye protection and no loose clothing while working near a running engine.
Take a piece of card board from a box..about 18inchs by 18 inchs, fold it a few time until it is about 18" by 4" Have someone start the engine.....and stay inside the car, with the engine at a idle only. Slowly and carefully put the end of the folded cardboard into the outside of the fan fins. If the fan stops turning, then, with a cold engine. The fan clutch is working correctly. If the engine is hot and the fan is working correctly then the fan will tear of the end of the cardboard and probably won't stop turning...unless you have a defective fan clutch.
Good luck, and what I told only applies with a Thermostatcially controlled clutch fan. The is how you test them to see if they are working properly. Richard.
