2003 FORD RANGER EDGE 3.0L V6 - BAD FAN CLUTCH

Converting to an electric fan is not an option for me and this truck at this time. If you have a 3.0L V6 Ranger and your fan is this noisy then the fan clutch is going bad or is just bad. Mine is so bad it is engaged all the time. Sounds like a giant vacuum cleaner rolling down the street. The truck has a hair over 90K miles on it at the time of this video recording.

How to Replace a Fan Clutch
Learn how to change the fan clutch on your Mazda B3000 and Ford Ranger pickup trucks. This process will also work for almost any other car out there that has a fan clutch. What the fan clutch does is regulate the speed of the fan so that the engine can warm up fast, yet stay cool when its at operating temps (like how a thermostat regulates temp). When the fan clutch goes bad, it can lock up and spin at full speed depending on the engine rpm. The problem is that at high rpms your belt can break, the fan can break, and you engine makes a lot of noise. This video will teach you how to change the fan clutch ($30) and save at least $150. This also works for the bronco II 2.9 motor (and many other motors) **If the video helped, please give it a "thumbs up" and consider subscribing.

New Fan Clutch Installed - 2003 Ford Ranger Edge 3.0L
At 91K my factory fan clutch was noisy. It cost me a lot of power and fuel. Now that I've replaced it the engine is more responsive and runs much quieter. The bad fan clutch also contributed to a lot of the belt squeal I had going on no long ago, but all other parts that may contribute to the squeal were also replaced.

FORD Supderduty ~ Fan Clutch ~ How to Lock-Up Manually
If you somehow end up with a catastrophic fan clutch failure like me, you may be wondering if you can manually lock-up your fan clutch to get you where you need to go. On my truck,the clip that holds the wire harness to the fan shroud broke, allowing the fan to suck in the wire and ripped it off at the clutch itself. My only perceivable option on the side of the road was to try to feed 12Volts to the bare wires coming out of the solenoid coil. This didn't work for me, unfortunately, so I vowed to do whatever it took to figure out how one could manually lock up the fan clutch on the side of the road. This video is the result You will need a drill with a 1/8" to 3/16" bit and a long deck screw. Or a larger bit and lag bolt, Basically whatever you have on your truck that is at least 2.5" ~ ~ ~~ My Collection of all the Best FORD 6.0L Stuff on Amazon: http://astore.amazon.com/hh07f-20

Bad Fan Clutch?
Sitting at idle for long amounts of time (Drive through, waiting in a long line of cars during a traffic jam, etc) the temperature gauge starts to slowly rise. I don't let it overheat but it starts to get hot. I am leaning towards it being an issue with one of the fans. The auxilary fan works when I engage the AC, but it seems to not engage during idles with it off. When driving, the gauge goes right back to the middle, so the problem only occurs under long idles with poor airflow.
