How to Replace a Fan Clutch
Learn how to change the fan clutch on your Mazda B3000 and Ford Ranger pickup trucks. The fan clutch replacement process will also work for almost any other car out there that has a fan clutch and not an electric fan. 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.

2003 FORD RANGER EDGE 3.0L V6 NOISY 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. Edit: Comments about other vehicles that are not Rangers will not be approved.
