Question about 2004 Dodge Durango

2 Answers

2004 Dodge Durango Clutch fan issue, clutch fan disengages after 1-2 minutes after cold startup then engages everytime you come to a stop and start again, temp is just below halfway, I have already replaced the clutch fan and it is doing the same exact thing before I replaced it. The old clutch fan was 4-5 in in diameter , the new clutch fan is 6in in diameter. I have seen many forums with this problem and no solution. Could it just be that there is too much heat in the engine compartment itself causing the clutch fan to stay engaged. I know they are hydraulic and temp sensitive. Is there a way to disengage the clucth fan like drilling a small hole to release the hydraulic fluid?

This sometime happens when a new fan clutch is installed. If the issue does not subside in a week, I would consider that you may have gotten a defective part, and need to replace it.

The compressor is going out. The only time the compressor actually runs is when the clutch is engaged, the rest of the time the pulley acts as an idler pulley and just free wheels. I would suggest replacing the compressor and the accumulator.

Compressor Clutch disengages and Radiator Fan starts to run loudly


The radiator fan should turn on when the a/c clutch engages as this is designed to increase the cooling of the engine as the a/c increases the engine loading. But the compressor clutch should stay engaged as long as there is need for cooling, and disengage/re-engage as the temperature control calls for cool air. The radiator fan will shut off IF the engine temperature is cool enough to do so, as it is regulated by heat, as well as the A/c override.

If your air conditioning is not cooling the car and the clutch is simply disengaging prematurely, have the temperature control and relay checked for proper operation. Also have the refrigerant level checked to assure there is adequate refrigerant in the system and no leaks. My first bet would be the relay or the thermostatic temperature control under the dash.

04 dodge durango will not blow cold air blows regular air. Why?


Not in a specific order of importance:

A lack of refridgerant.
The compressor not engaging due to low pressure, or another fault.
The cooling fan or fan clutch not operating properly.
The climate control system not functioning.
The switch not working.
A blown fuse or circuit breaker or fusible link.




Good luck !

My 2001 Dodge Durango starts fine idols down fine to 600rpms but for the first 20-30 seconds after takeoff something is reving very high then stops. Does anyone no what it could be? Someone mentioned to me...


Dealership experience plus ownership tells me this is indeed your fan clutch. This is nornal to a certain degree. You will find this is more prevailant during colder temps.Due to fluid in the coupling being more viscious. In my opinion, if the noise from the fan pushing air at full force, even though coolant and engine is cold, lasts more than 10 seconds, have fan cluth replaced. Be aware that this noise is completely normal during elevated coolant/engine temps, obviously to cool the Radiator/engine. To replace....... protect radiator from damage from fan .Fan and clutch unscrew together, LEFT HAND THREAD. Big nut. Tool avail. to rent. @ auto parts. Engage spanner with nut , hit other end of spanner with big mallet to loosen. Swap your good fan with new clutch .Reverse procedure to install.

Screeching noise, then a/c stops blowing cold air. Still blows air, just not cold air.


it could be the air conditioning clutch going out. to check turn your car on and idle it with ac on and hood open. at the ac compressor it will have a pulley on it with a clutch that engages when the air conditioning is on. if it engages and disengages it can be the clutch itself has gone bad, the ac clutch will also disengage if there is not enough freon in the ac system, will also engage and disengage if the pressure gets too high in the ac system. Depending on the year of the vehicle it will disengage at full throttle and come back on when you are not at full throttle.
If it is a metallic sounding screech for example take a coke can and drag it across pavement kind of sound it could be a bad compressor or a bad ac clutch. If it is a more rubbery sound for example a car spinning its tires kind of noise it could be a loose belt.

1. Check to make sure all belts are tight under hood
2. start car and look at ac compressor to make sure compressor pulley is turning and that the fan clutch is engaged spinning
