Over Active Fan Clutch
Got a 2005 F550 all stock 162K.
Recently noticed the fan engaging alot. Not so much when the truck is cold but when it is up to operating temp. When up to temp it will kick on from take off up to about 45-50 mph go off come back on at 60 then off around 65. At normal speed when i accelerate it comes on and stays on sometimes for a few mins then fades off.
This has just started happening within the past few days. Outside tems in the low 80's. Not pulling any loads. I would rarely hear it even when pulling
I dont have any gagues so I am only going off dash and all gagues are in normal range.
Any ideas on what to look for? I assume that I am in need of a fan clutch but what to see what you guys had to say.
Thank in advance
