hmmm, there is a bit of black on the fans that I was wondering how it got there, since those are brand new fans with less than 100 miles on them, but i didnt really think too much about it.Usually when the fan clutch fails, you'll see a black-colored discharge around the center of the fan clutch. A tell-tale sign...
i think the belt routing is fine, i just followed the diagram on the sticker under the hood. and heres a picture of right at the fan area where the clutch comes together.It's probably fine if it has a decent amount of resistance to turning.
If your new fan clutch is still under warranty, you could always try to take it back in exchange for another one. Just to eliminate that as a possibility.
I wonder about your belt routing, but maybe that can't be backwards on your model of Ranger. I'm not sure..
It sounds like insufficient air flow and your fan clutch would be my first suspect. A defective new part is unfortunately not a rare thing.yeah it runs great while unplugged. but I got a new OEM Motorcraft sensor installed, and were still overheating.
I drove it on the freeway today, and that kept the temp steady, but still overheats while idle, or driving at sub 50mph speeds.
does that mean my new clutch fan is faulty? or am I looking at a radiator problem?
Don't recall if Tomm1468 installed a new Radiator or if this is an old\original Radiator?It sounds like insufficient air flow and your fan clutch would be my first suspect. A defective new part is unfortunately not a rare thing.
