Comments about CARQUEST Fan Clutch - 6" Thermal:

Drove my 1991 Jeep Cherokee Laredo over Kenosha Pass to Buena Vista in Colorado with this fan clutch installed. The fan clutch worked as intended with zero issues. I have also installed this fan clutch on a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Police Package and it also works well with no issues.

Comments about CARQUEST Fan Clutch - 6" Thermal:

Easy to install, however after installation i tried to fit my fan shroud cover back on and broke the fan shroud. Today i tried to install the new fan shroud and i found out that this new fan clutch is thicker and will not allow you to slip the fan shroud past the fan clutch at all, and i am taking the fan clutch back to the store.

        I would not recommend the use of a finger for anything to do with or near the fan while the engine is running.

        A:

        Try turning the fan in the reverse direction than the way it spins. If it spins freely, they clutch is bad.

        Answered on 8/12/2010 by Mike from AAP
      • A:

        Also, the stock fan clutch will kick on when the engine is first started, making a loud fan-like noise for the first couple of blocks. If it doesn't, consider replacing.
