Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site, there is only a fan clutch. and to replace those items in no way shouls even come close to 900.00. .......300.00 MAX!

Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 2 months ago.

There is a fan, fan clutch, and a spacer on this engine. With the fan shroud and all of the parts $900.00 is a fare price. The fan is plastic and is known to crack.

Expert:  david craig replied 2 months ago.

that is absolutely untrue. those parts can be obtained for 1/3 of the price. excuse the interruption

Expert:  david craig replied 2 months ago.

The shop is marking up the prices for the parts 200% as most shops do, which to me is a rip off.

Expert:  david craig replied 2 months ago.

May I ask what year is the vehicle please?

Expert:  david craig replied 2 months ago.

as far as there being a fan clutch and a clutch fan is what is was referring to, there isnt both.

Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 2 months ago.

Yes there is a clutch fan. You either have a straight fan or a clutch fan. A straight fan bolt directly to the water pump or bearing, and a clutch fan bolts to the clutch.

Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 2 months ago.

Total for parts will be around $550.00 plus labor.

Expert:  david craig replied 2 months ago.

Please excuse the interruptions. Those parts can be obtained for 262.03 total plus labor

Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 2 months ago.

If you get them from a junk yard maybe. New they are right at $550.00 plus two hours labor plus tax.
