Top 20 Metra Ford F 150 Truck 1996 Up Questions & Answers

The idea of the clutch fan is that when your vehicle gets hot the clutch is designed to start gripping the fan blade more to allow the fan to spin faster as the temperature risies. Then when you are moving fast the clutch will disengage and free wheel letting the air move freely past it. The fan would actually be moving slower than the air rushing into the engine compartment from the speed of the car and would be blocking the flow.

The most important part of the clutch fan that makes it work properly is the Shroud, it attaches to the radiator and it directs the heat toward the clutch properly. Without the correct shroud the clutch is useless and will not function properly.

You won't know if the water is moving unless you removed the thermostat, the thermostat will remain closed till the car heats up and then water will flow through your raditor.
Water pumps always spin! Unless you belt has come off it will be spinning, What happens to water pumps is they will end up with a bad bearing and will get hot. There is a small hole in the bottom by the bearing that will eventually let the water leak out to keep that bearing from melting and seizing up. If you are not hearing any grinding noises or squealing or water leaking your pump is fine.

Your problem might be in the throttle body or TPS. Check it with a multimeter. Slowly move the throttle and watch the meter for erratic movement. If it looks good clean the body and reassemble. Be sure to check the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) if your car has one. I hope this helps, Ray

I tried to recategorize this question to get it into a more probable area to get a response but found that there just isn't anything suited for this question. I would try some forums that have more specialized and probable answers to this. There's a ton of information if you locate the places that discuss these topics. Or even try ebay, there's a good chance you could find exactly what you need there or even have the question answered by a seller for free. It never hurts to ask nicely.

The actual aerial normally a single plug with a pointy end on it which plugs into the back of the radio.If the 2 leads red and green are separate wires they sound like the power to release the aerial for semi auto pop up aerial or motor drive if it has motor attached.Depending on your radio the aerial will operate when turned on ,if not then for radio aerial with motor you will have to fit a 2 way switch
