If the noise is coming from the engine compartment, then check the fan clutch for lock-up. Shut off engine and manually try to turn the fan blade. Replace the fan clutch if there is a lot of resistance.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
there is a lot of resistance...... what is the best kind to get off amazon? 96 silverado 5.7L
Well, being a retired GM tech, I like using original parts on my vehicles. However, I have to recognize the fact that Hayden makes a pretty good fan clutch for a heck of a lot less than Delco. Click here to compare prices.
So, if you're a stickler for original parts, go with Delco, but if you're looking for a good part at a good price regardless of brand name, then go with Hayden.
Just wanted to check and see how you were doing with that Silverado. Did you replace that fan clutch with a Hayden or a Delco unit?
