Fan motor noise 2005 t bird

My 2005 T bird has a loud fan motor noise. When the fan motor comes on it is loud and stays loud. I have been told that the fan motor could be going bad or it could be sticking in high speed.

Any ideas?

My 2005 trailblazer makes a bird chirping noise. Exactly like birds. My mechanic replaced the belt but it is still making the noise.


If is a serpentine belt, take it out and check the belt tensioner. some of them have a screw that allows for tightening/loosing the belt. Sometimes it looses some bearings and it could chirp.

I have a 2005 nissan maxima, while i was driving it died on me. Then a loud knocking noise from a rod started, now the car will barely run. How much to fix it?


to machine the crank and get another rod --set of big end and mains-- probably a rebore-- pistons --rings --labour Time off road- It will be cheaper to fit a reconditioned short motor so check around for one from an accredited engine remanufacturer.

I knew someone with a Ford Taurus that had the same loud chirp like a loud bird. That turned out to be the cam shaft sensor assembly if memory serves me right.

Mitsubishi mighty max 3.0 v8 loud noise coming from the fan area


If the fan is attached to the water pump tahe hold of a blade and try back and forward towards the motor. If there is movement there it will be either a fan hub failing or a water pump bearing. Second check remove the fan belt and check for noise.( idle engine for short period of time) If it is gone confirm pump by spinning any adjuster pulleys and check for noise or rough movement

Heat and air conditioner does not work properly. The air will come on very lightly - If I hit a bump or kick the bottom of dashoard - It will sometimes come on, but makes a loud noise when it does start...


It may just be time to replace the blower motor or the blower resister. The brushes in the fan motor assembly may be worn and not making very good contact. Using a test light at the connection at the fan motor harness is a good way to see if you're getting power to the motor when requested, if so, it is time to replace the blower fan assembly.

I have a lincoln ls 2002 and a few days ago i was driving it and the fan came on and it was very loud and now everytime i drive it the fan comes on and stays on acting as if it was connected directly..what...


there is a heat sensor that turns fan on when motor temp is to high. ( providing this is a electric fan ) Check coolant level and make sure full as well as the reservoir.Check when engine is cold ( i suggest taking vehicle in for repair or check for temp sensor failure.) I dont know how very loud you are trying to point out but yes it will make a fan noise which might be loud to some. If this fan is a clutch fan then a mechanical funtion takes place turning fan on and off in essence. If clutch is not releasing fan will pull air at all times which also will be like a loud fan sound which will also rob car of some power and mpg. clutch will have to be replaced. ( note the electric fan will not rob car of power or mpg.

Loud noise when air is on had belt tension replace still making noise now im told its the engine mount


This is hard to answer without hearing the noise, a 2005 altima it would have to have alot of miles or have been drinen hard to need a motor mount, the compressor could be noisey or may be a loose heat sheild on the exhaust,a squeal noise would be a belt a rattle noise could be a pulley going bad or something loose, when ac is on it puts more strain on engine causing things to shake,i would have a second shop just look at it before doing anything, see if they both come up with the same problem, and dont tell them what the other shop told you about the mount, tell them only after they tell you its something else.

Air conditioner fan is making a loud noise


1. Could be a caught foreign object between A/C (air conditioning) fan and cooling radiator, producing this loud noise.
2. Could be a damaged fan blade, mowing the cooling radiator.
3. Could be a loud noise comming from the fan's electrical motor.
4. Could be a broken off fin (small wing) of the cooling radiator, striking the A/C fan, producing this loud noise.

2005 dodge 3500 ram / noise from a/c on passenger side. Very loud when fan is on full blast - not much ac blowing out.


Sounds like you either have something stuck in the blower motor (leaves, pine needles, etc?) or the blower motor bearings are worn out.

Air conditioner fan motor


Well, I did some investigation into the ptoblem and ended up pulling the ac fan out. The squirrel cage was full of what looked to be the remains of a bird nest sucked into the fan. I cleaned it out, reinstalled, and it works like new again.
