A fan clutch is an important part of your cooling system. In addition, it controls the engine cooling fans and the operation of them. Also, they are a thermostatic device, that means it is used based on temperature. They are usually mounted on a water pump or other type pulley.
One of the first signs you will notice is overheating. If it is going bad, the fans in the engine will not turn on which will cause overheating. Another sign is loud cooling fans. If a fan clutch gets stuck, it may make the fans turn on at full speed, causing unusual noise. Another sign is your fuel efficiency will decrease as well as your acceleration. A broken fan clutch can cause unnecessary drag and load on an engine decreasing efficiency.
