Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. YES, this engine has an electrical cooling fan on the radiator to help keep the engine and cooling system from getting too hot.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry. Should have been more clear. Is also supposed to have a fan off the motor?
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

YES, it should have a fan so when the motor turns, it sucks air through the front of the radiator keeping it cool.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
why would they have removed that fan? do you have a part number?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
do you have a diagram?
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

Sorry for the delay! YES, I can get a diagram. Are you looking for a picture of the fan or a wiring diagram for the fan?

Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

It looks like some of these came with a fan clutch and not an electric fan. Which one do you have? Can you upload a picture?

Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

Here is a link to amazon. It is a picture of the fan clutch for this vehicle.

I have an electric fan. it does not have a fan clutch like you sent a link to. So am I ok?
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

Ok, then yes, if this is the case, it still needs the fan blades. You will have to get that installed so it is working correctly.
