Having some sort of a fan issue going on...
my guess is you dont know the radiator fan rules.
its different on each of 3 engines
I have the 3.7L in same car, same year, but is WK yours is XK
the larger passenger compartment with bigger engine.
i have the FSM (SM) factory service manual.
so will post the words out of it , its free to read, posted 300+ time here. and no more posts, im going dark....lol
chapter 7 covers both engine.
the 5.7 uses hydraulic fan (not electric motors but uses hydraluic motors, off ps pump)
so is the PS, assist ok and no noises from it.?
first the quotes in cht.7
5.7L ENGINE The 5.7L hydraulic cooling fan is integral
to the fan shroud and is located between the radiator
and the engine.
The power steering pump supplies the hydraulic fluid
and pressure to rotate the cooling fan blade, while the
electrical part of the fan is controlled by the FCM.
The hydraulic fan drive (motor) consists of the three
major following components:
² Steering flow control valve
² Fan control valve
² Two stage G-rotor hydraulic drive
The hydraulic fan and drive is not serviceable. Therefore
any failure of the fan blade, hydraulic fan drive or
fan shroud requires replacement of the fan module
because the fan blade and hydraulic fan drive are
matched and balanced as a system and servicing
either separately would disrupt this balance.
end quote now the rules
HYDRAULIC FAN STRATEGY
The hydraulic radiator cooling fan is controlled by the FCM. A PWM (Pulse With Modulated) signal from the JTEC
controls the fan speed. There are four inputs to the FCM that determine what speed percentage of fan is required
by the vehicle. These inputs are:
² Engine Coolant Temperature
² Transmission Oil Temperature
² A/C System Pressure
By monitoring these three parameters, the FCM can determine if cooling airflow is required. If airflow is required, the
FCM will slowly ramp up (speed up) the fan speed until the parameter(s) are under control. Once the temperature
HYDRAULIC FAN FLUID FLOW CIRCUIT

2 - POWER STEERING PUMP
3 - HYDRAULIC FAN DRIVE ASSEMBLY
4 - FAN BLADE
5 - HYDRAULIC FAN CONTROL SOLENOID
6 - POWER STEERING OIL COOLER
7 - STEERING GEAR
WK ENGINE 7 - 35
or pressure is reduced to within operating parameters the fan will ramp up, ramp down, or hold its speed to maintain
the temperature / pressure requirements.
NOTE: Even if the FCM is not requesting fan on operation the fan blade will usually spin between 100 and
500 RPM when the vehicle is at idle. This is due to a controlled minimum oil flow requirement through the
fan drive motor.
so is it still broke, or just a learning curve
its not simple at all.
in fact all 2005 up GC are complex fan controls
using tables to decide need, and speed.
on all modern jeeps.
