I just installed a clutch fan into my 2004 dodge durango and now the suv runs so heavy. I mean the suv runs loud. Is this normal?

    Hey, the same thing happened to me. I actually had it installed at AAMCO. My engine sounded the same way "loud" and ran "heavy" like you said. It felt sluggish, never the same after that. Found out the one they installed was not a "dodge" fan clutch so now I'm getting one from the dealer and they're going to install it for me.

    What ever happened? Do you still have your Durango?

Not sure what you mean by "heavy" and "loud"..

The fan might be "louder" because it may have been allot more quiet with the old failing fan clutch and not spinning fast enough.. Thus the new one working correctly making the fan spin much faster and being "louder"..
If that makes sense - to you question..

No, the clutch/fan combination may be out of balance. Maybe a screw loose or missing, fan blade bent, fan hitting the shroud.
With engine running, look under hood and examine the fan assembly. Turn A/C on and off to change the tension onthe belt to see if the sound changes or is coming from the A/C compressor pulley.
Question: why was the clutch changed? If the noise was present before, then the tensioner pully may be the cause. Consider replacing it.

I just replaced th fan clutch and water pump on my 2004 durango 4.7 and when i step on the gas now tach needle jumps up like crazy and the fan sounds like a jet and the engine seems slugish


The fan clutch may be different from the original, they use oil inside to vary the speed most of the time. Some are more affected by air temp than others.
As far as performance goes, is the check engine light on ?

Loud sound from fan upon starting, fan is running and its loud maybe a clicking or rattling type sound, might be some wobble?


fan shroud is loose or dropped down, or fan mount is loose. could be bent blade? could be engine mounts. any accident? could be radiator supports. you need to look and see where fan is hitting. could be fan clutch also. are you sure there is no junk stuck in fan shroud like tree branch or other road debris?

Temporary overheating when idle


Check if your fan is starting when engine temp roughly reaches 1/2 ,,,if it does not then you may need to replace the thernostat or check the fan.

2004 dodge durango overheating...fan shaking making loud noise


Fan shaking? not a good thing... you need to find out why...fan itself or water pump...change whichever is bad.
