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.

Scotty Kilmer, mechanic for the last 45 years, shows how to replace a
defective cooling fan clutch assembly. They do just bolt on and off, BUT
there's a few tricks to getting them off that Scotty shows which makes
installation a breeze.

How to fix 2003 Dodge Cummins P0483 P2509 won't start . The fan clutch is
the problem. It will often times start if you unplug the fan clutch plug
located on the passenger side of the bottom of the radiator. Once the fan
clutch gets bad enough it causes the Engine Control Module to not power up.
This causes the no start condition as well as a Diagnostic Link Connector
to not communicate. Cycling the key three times will still give you codes
on the odometer though.

to tell that the fan clutch is bad aside from the loud sweeper truck noise
the fan makes when going do the road.

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. You can read and see pictures about this
issue at http://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2/showthread.php?t=76585

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.
