Question about 2000 Isuzu Rodeo
My mechanic replaced my fan clutch. The new one, an aftermarket brand I am not familiar with makes a hugh roaring noise at idle and up to 30-35mph. The engine power is gone. I can barely get up the freeway ramp. The car runs far worse and is way louder than when I took it in. The mechanic said the parts place told him it needs to break in, and the oil get loose or something like that. It sounds like bull. I have put almost 100 miles on it since then, and it is still the same. Any help?
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.
