I just blew 5 bucks ? !!!!!
Expert:  James replied 4 months ago.
You haven't blown any money I'm still hear. There are many people to assist. If you unplug it and the fan disengages there is an electrical concern. If the fan locks up while being unplugged then the fan clutch is bad.
Expert:  James replied 4 months ago.
The fan will always turn while the engine is running but at a musch slower speed. When this fan engages it almost sounds like an airplane taking off. They are very loud when the hood is open.

Also if you test for engine codes fan clutches will usually set a p0528 code
