Chances are it's your fan clutch or your relay to your fan clutch going bad, you can try swapping out your DRL relay with your fan clutch relay. There the same relay which is a actually more then a relay, it's more like a voltage regulator relay. The other suggestion is to have the dealer scan your Bravada for any related cooling DTC codes and see if there is a PCM upgrade program to address your issue.

My engine light turned on and had it checked. Said my engine was running a little cooler then it's suppose to. Why?


Couple of things here, one is P0128 code, this is almost always your thermostat and or temperature sensor located right above the thermostat. Do both when replacing the thermostat. The other problem it COULD be would be your fan clutch, IF your fan clutch is stuck engaged, it would be very loud and get louder as you go faster, sounds like an airplan. If your fan clutch is normal, it's probably the thermostat. If your engine is running cool, you're losing 2-6 MPG of gas, so it's worth getting fixed.

My cooling fan on a 2006 Jeep liberty 3.7L runs slow. You can even stop it while engine is running. Is this normal or do I have a problem?


Probably not.
The fan clutch uses oil to regulate the speed of the fan depending on air temp.
The hotter the air the faster it should turn. The faster the engine speed the slower it turns.
At idle in normal air temp it should be too firm to stop with your hand, which is pretty dangerous by the way.

The engine fan stays on all the time. Sounds like a tractor trailer fan when it kicks in. How to fix?


Your fan clutch is shot. Unit needs to be replaced. The original part had serious issues but has been upgraded. Make sure you get the newer type unit. When parked & cold, you should be able to easily turn the fan. If you cannot, the unit is bad.

02 envoy, 6 cyl, loud wooshing noise when engine is cold. fan clutch seems fully engaged. goes away when engine warms up. is this normal or does fan clutch need replaced


Fan clutches for Envoys and Trailblazer are a problem, they go out all the time.

However, it is normal for it to do this when cold, but will only stay engaged for maybe 15 seconds AFTER you've put it in gear and have started to drive. After this, it will disengage and allow the engine to warm up faster.

If you haven't already replaced the fan clutch once, you're lucky. 2002 is especially bad for the clutches, but all years don't last long. Mine lasted 90k which is pretty long.

I have a 2006 gmc envoy xl that sounds real loud like a jet when you start it up and when excelerating it gets louder and louder. Could it be the fan clutch or the relay any answers anyone


Fan clutch failure is common on these........and very costly to replace. With the engine cold, engine off, reach in and turn the fan, it should turn with minimal resistance, if it has heavy drag, or wont turn at all, it needs replaced.

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..

Hello, I see you have a trailblaber with a knocking noise. It sounds like you have an electric fan clutch issue. Believe it or not your vehicle has an electric fan clutch. It looks just like the older non-electric but if you look on the driver side of the fan shroud that is the wire connector you see. It is an exspensive part just for the clutch but thats exactly what you are describing. It doesn't get louder just fast with rpms. Please rate my answer, Thank you
