6.0 cooling fan help

this is on a 2005 6.0 while driving the fan will not engage and run for a few min like my 7.3 does, this one will just pulse, on then off on then off , is this a bad clutch or does the 6.0 have more to it?
thanks

Pretty sure they are only supposed to run for like 30 seconds.

Are you having any over-heating issues?

I've experienced what you are talking about. My fan would engage for 1 second at a time randomly and now it doesn't come on at all.

The fan is controlled by the computer and it also reads the fan speed by a sensor attached to the electrically-actuated clutch. There are ford-specific codes for failure of each of these but a generic code reader probably won't pick them up (doesn't show a CEL either). You can also read the state of the clutch and the instantaneous fan speed with a reader that can monitor the sensor data. Autoenginuity will read all of these.

The wiring hangs down from the driver-side top of the radiator. Be sure that it's all put together properly because if the wiring gets tangled up in the fan it will get you a lot more problems and codes unrelated to the fan - mine came to me that way and it took a while to sort it out!

With a non-working fan clutch my 2003 truck worked completely normally as a daily driver unless I was standing still and the outside temp was 90-100F+ Even then the only symptom was the A/C would cut out sometimes until I started moving again.

Is the fan speed sensor replaceable as I can't find the sensor part number anywhere.

I too have AE but all I found for the fan was the fan speed. What are the other parameters you can monitor that has to do with the fan?

Flex -A Lite makes a dual electric fan kit for the 6.0 PSD. It flows 6,000cfms, and has a manual override switch. They don't recommend towing over 10,000lbs with their electric fans. You will gain some rwhp, but keep in mind that the stock fan clutch assembly delivers 10,000 cfm!
