  • Checking the cooling fan clutch

    If you ever get coolant temp problems don't forget to check the fan clutch...

    With the hotter weather my coolant temp gauge would creep up when the car under load - towing boat / van.....It's never done this before ....The radiator was recored earlier this year, along with new water pump, thermostat and all new hoses.

    One thing left I hadn't replaced - the fan clutch......

    With the old fan clutch and the motor cold - I could spin the fan by hand and it would spin over 2 revolutions before stopping..

    Put the new one in - same effort in spinning the fan - only about 1/4 rev before stopping.. Temp problem now gone...

    So keep in mind the fan clutch if you have temp problems...

    How much did you pay for another clutch ?

    I just bodgied mine up with more oil (10mL) from Toyota for $40 and doesn't free spin at all but I don't think it hindered the motor being so tight. Certainly shifts some air though.

      Hi Jayde,
      The one I bought cost $250 and was not original Mitsy equipment - I was told around $550 for the mitsy one.
