What would cause the engine fan to pop off on my 2002 kia sportage


The fan has a clutch. It sounds like yours failed and the fan parted. You need a new fan and a new radiator. :>(

AC Clutch noise and vibration


An A/C clutch will not make this concern happen, more likely the A/C compressor is begining to go out. The belt on the A/C clutch Assy. free wheels (spins feree on the pulley) when clutch is not engaged. If concern is not present with A/C off this means the bearings in the puley assy. ok. Once the A/C clutch is engaged it locks the compressor against the spinning pulley and turn the compressor chaft and spins the A/C compressor internal shaft. If you hear a loud "screach" when you turn on the A/C it means the belt slipped for a second, if it continiues to screach it means either the belt is loose or that the compressor is internaly locking up. I wouild start by checking the belt tension (if not equipted with and auto tensioner). You can also remove the belt and turn on the A/C and attempt to turn the clutch/pulley by hand, it should turn with a little effect but should not bind or lock at times if that happens compressor is bad.

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?


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..

The fan clutch was replaced but the same noise which sounds like an airplane taking off is still present when accelerating at any speed. Does the fan motor need to be replaced also?


Could be your belt tensioner is worn out and needs replacing, common for a 10 year old vehicle. Is it a loud squeeling noise? if so then it's the belt slipping and rubber on metal pullys is a loud screeching noise

Loud high pitched noise from belt


When you have the belt off, spin that idler pulley and see if it turns easily or makes noise. Check if the bearing feels good and smooth or if it wobbles any. While you are at it, check the fan and fan clutch to see if they turn smoothly also. There should be some resistance to the fan clutch, and make sure the fan isn't rubbing on anything.

Replacing the idler pulley is usually done as a unit since the bearing is part of the pulley.

Loud grinding noise


The best way to check this is to remove the serpintine belt from the engine (be sure to make note of how it is routed around the pulleys.......most cars have a diagrahm siticker to show the routing under the hood some where).then give each of the pulleys a spin by hand,the only pulley you shouldnt be able to turn by hand is the one on the very bottom of the engine(Crank Pulley).all of the others should spin freely...if any of them feel tight or have a funny feel to them that is likely your problem.....keep in mind if you continue to drive it the way it is the bad acessory will make itself known,melt the belt off of the car and leave you stranded....as i type im also thinking you could be low on power steering fluid does the cars noise change if you turn the wheels while sitting idling? if so check the power steering fluid.......If neither of these things seem to be the problem.It could be the a\c clutch making some noise.....if a\c is unused for a while rust can build up between the pulley and the a\c clutch.If so simply turn on the a\c for a while and the friction should remove the rust and remedy the problem providing the a\c is charged and functioning properly........
hope this helps...Good Luck!

Squealing NOISE possibly from fan belt


If the noise going away every time u turning off the ac it's probably your ac compressor belt.however i will suggest to take some vaseline and rub it all over the exposed parts of your drive belt.
