fan clutch

my engine fan dosent come on anymore. i use to hear it and now nothing. i can warm up the engine and i dont feel any air i bet i could even stop the fan if i wanted. does the fan clutch usually go out on the 6.0 or is it something more serious? i have 114000 miles now and was thing it is just wore out what do you juys think?

do you have a way to read codes? if its bad it will throw a code. I dont think the fan turns on untill the engine temp reaches 215 degrees

My fan clutch gave up over a year ago. No codes. Replaced it and all is well.

There are at least two codes for the 6.0's fan clutch (speed sensor and control circuit) but they're Ford-specific so many code readers won't read them.

Someone before me had tangled the fan clutch wiring in the fan on my 6.0 Ex and it was sheared off. It caused all kinds of havoc with codes including some from the transmission because of a shared circuit. Disconnecting the frayed wires solved the transmission code problem (phew!)

In normal driving, even in the Texas summer the engine didn't even heat up w/o a fan clutch (the fan still spins without the wiring, just more slowly), however the A/C would fade out when stopped in traffic so $500 later I had a new fan clutch installed.
