Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you
If you are moving the fan that far, just look down in at the pulley. If the pulley is moving with the fan then your water pump is bad. If the pulley is not moving then the clutch is your problem.
The fan clutch is a simple replacement. It calls for 1/2 and hour to do the job.
Thanks for the question, let me know if I can help you further
