The fluid being pink indicates there is water in the fluid. I think the first thing you should do is to flush the pump and add some fresh fluid and see if the fan will not run at the normal speed.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
