No but that means that the clutch inside the fan is worn and it may soon seize up you need to replace,but it wont give out a code for something mechanical.
please leave feedback

Why does my tacoma fan coil make a roaring noise

If the fan is connected to the water pump, it could be a fan clutch problem. The clutch is not supposed to kick in unless the engine is hot.

1997 Town & Country: have a roaring noise when i start my van...

check your fan. If it is a clutch type (has an aluminum clutch mechanism behind fan) it may be stuck in the engaged position (it's supposed to freewheel when the engine is cold) If it is internally binding, you cannot fix it. Just replace it.
If the fan is OK, you will need to look at everything and locate the source of the noise or have a good shop look for you. There is no such thing as a good noise, so have it taken care of asap!

Engine makes loud roar

It sounds like a fan clutch has failed.

A fan clutch is a thermostatic device that exists as an integral component of certain automotive cooling systems. When the engine is cool or even at normal operating temperature, the fan clutch partially disengages the engine's mechanically-driven radiator cooling fan, generally located at the front of the water pump and driven by a belt and pulley connected to the engine's crankshaft. This saves power, since the engine does not have to fully drive the fan

I have a 4x4 explorer and it makes a roaring sound from front end is this normal for this model to do this

This model explorer is equipped with a mechanical clutch fan. When starting the engine and when accelerating from a stop, it can tend to roar as the engine reeves up. If that is what you are hearing then yes, it is normal.

2002 GMC Envoy is having a tough time shifting at 85,000 miles. It also starts & idles at higher RPMs. The car is also much noiser from the engin & fan. What is wrong - the trans., motor needing a...

I ran into this concern with my 2002 and my wife ran into the almost identical problem with her 2003. this may sound silly,, but it was the clutch fan. Extreme loss of power from time to time came first. Then a roar of the what seemed like the engine when stopping. Actually cut off after it started to roar at highway speeds, and had absolutely no excelleration from time to time. Sometimes all of the symptoms completely went away. After taking mine to the dealer several times, finally they got it right and replaced the fan clutch. When my wifes 2003 SLt started doing the exact same thing as my 2002 had done, we both knew what the problem was, and the dealer did a quick fix. $600.00. Perhaps this should have been a recall feature, but never was. Everyone that I know that has an envoy, somewhere around the 72,000 and 103,000 mile mark has had this problem and have had to have the clutch fan replaced. It may sound like the vehicle is going to have to be junked,, but that is all it needs.

2000 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2L v6

No the fan clutch doesn't need to break in. I've never heard of that and I'm a mechanic owner/operator. Our personal car is a Trooper with a 3.2L The roaring noise is normal but the timing on your Rodeo sounds like it's retarded somehow. I'd take it back to him and have him deal with it. As an owner/operator, I would definitely make sure the customer is happy with their car no matter if I was to spend a little money out of my pocket to make it right and keep the customer. He should do this for you as a shop warranty. The roar should only be heard right after start up and go away or leaving a stop light on a hot day but only for a few seconds.
