04 trailblazer takes a long time to cool and sometimes barely cools could it be the fan clutch and how do you remove it to replace it?
Sounds more like a thermostat or water pump. The fan clutch locks up when it is toast. Fan will wiggle a bit when the water pump is shot.

Either a PCM reprogram or the fan clutch asembly will fic this condition. Replacement of the fan clutch is very labor intensive, and it is easy to put a hole iin the radiator or break something else if you do not have experience doing this procedure. TechJK ------------------------------------ …These errors are caused by software problems in the PCM. General Motors warrants this defect for unlimited mileage. Take your vehicle to a dealer for a free PCM upgrade to correct this and NUMEROUS other concerns (stalling, high idle, high fan speed, shift problems) This is garbage- GM will tell you get real- totally rubbish. The problem lies in their monopolized parts (Dealer stock item only) Common problem - expensive part (entire fan assembly) and labor- (entire front end disassembly) I paid appx. $600.00 for this error code to be cleared. Good luck! EVERYONE SHOULD BE AWARE THAT IF YOUR PCM FAILS IT IS COVERED UNDER THE (LONG TERM) EMISSIONS WARRANTY. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY TO HAVE IT REPLACED. IF THE DEALER WANTS YOU TO PAY FOR A NEW PCM THEN CALL THE 1 800 NUMBER FOR CHEVY (ON THE WEBSITE) This two answers helped me a great deal. I had the exact same problem on my 2003 Trailblazer. The check engine light came on, I took my vehicle to autozone and they told me the code was P0495 (cooling fan speed high)but they did't know how to fix the problem. After loking at this two previous answers, I called the dealer and they told me that it would cost me $89.00 to reprogram my PCM. I took my vehicle to the dealer and before checking my vehicle, the mechanic noticed the noise my vehicle was making (like a jet engine) and told me that in addition to reprograming the PCM I needed to replaced the fan clutch. The total cost was going to be $747.00. I didn't have the money so I went home and looked on eBay. I purchase a brand new fan clutch for $130.00. I am not a mechanic and it took me about two hours to replaced the fan clutch. You need a 12" crescent tool to remove the fan clutch from the water pump pulley. After replacing the fan clutch, I was on my way to the dealer to reprogram the PCM but noticed that the vehicle was working great so I skip the dealer and went to the 7 eleven and got me a six pack to celebrate. My vehicle is working like new. I hope this could help somebody out there. Good luck I have the EXACT same problem. My local Chevy dealer wants to charge me $800 to repair! I looked at the fan clutches on eBay (ZBRA) for $130. I noticed they have an electical connection but I couldn't quite see one on my clutch fan. Am I just not seeing the connection or is it possible that I don't have one. If I don't have a connection, is there a place to plug-in the new one? ALL 2002+ TRAILBLAZER/ENVOY/BRAVADA/SAAB 97X ETC HAVE A FAN CLUTCH ON THE I6 ATLAS ENGINE AND THERE IS ALWAYS AN ELECTRICAL CONECTOR TO IT. LOOK FOR A DANGLING WIRE THAT MAY JUST CONNECT TO A PLUG ON THE SHROUD. (MORE)
disconnect the battery and then disconnect the wiring from the cooling fan. there are 4 screws( 8mm) that hold it on the radiator. be careful when removing it as not to damage the radiator. I found this information at www.autozone.com, under the repair info
Answer . \nNot really-however, buy a replacement from Nissan.\nWe have had non-Nissan clutches range from lasting\na few months to bad out of the box.
Answer . 1.Remove the radiator and cooling fans as a single assembly\n2.Remove the bolts and separate the fan/shroud assembly from the radiator\n3.Remove the clip and detach the fan blade assembly from the motor shaft\n4.Remove the screws and detach the fan motor from the shroud
\n. \n Replacing the Radiator Cooling Fan Assembly \n. \nDepending on model, the radiator cooling fan(s) will be replaced by disconnecting the power (an automotive connector) then physically unbolting it from the radiator. Newer vehicles with less room in the engine compartment might require p…ulling the radiator, fans and all and then disconnecting it. Pretty much the same thing. (MORE)
Answer . I used a 12 inch crescent tool turning it counterclockwise and holding the water pump pulley in place with a 13mm tool. I hope this help. Good luck.
Answer . \nthe clutch fan is easy to remove and replace. you will see it on the upper most pully(water pump). just four 10mm nuts to take off. however the pully likes to spin so i use a screwdriver to hold it still or you could tighten the belt so it wont spin, just remember to loosen the belt… back to where it is supposed to be once you are done.

It appears that you will have to remove both front motor mounts in order to make room to lift out the entire dual fan assembly. After that either replace entire assembly or replace both motors. I would be darned sure that the fan motors are the problem before getting into all that. The front mounts …are torque mounts they do not hold the engine from falling out of the car they prevent rotation of the motor which is good in this case as it gives you more space Good Luck! (MORE)
Your temperature gage takes a long time to start moving up to normal and as soon as the cooling fans cut on the temperature needle drops to cold again?
Answer . \nI suggest you replace your vehicles thermostat; it is located at the lower end of the top radiator hose within the water outlet on the engine.
Your temperature gage works sometimes but your cooling fans work fine what else could be making your gage stop working?
Answer . \nTwo different circuits---the fan has a fan switch, and the gauge has a sending unit...also, the library should have a shop manual...:)
\n. \n Answer \n. \nyou have to take the entire assembly out the bottom of the car. Be careful when getting replacement parts as there are a number of part numbers available with deifferent harness connections
\n. \n New Answer \nI asked a few mechanic friends of mine. All pretty much said it was the fan clutch by my description. The answer above is really just, terrible. I understand that it is a part that can and does wear out just like any other part. I was really asking, if anyone thought the fan… clutch was bad in this case. Oh well. I took it to the dealer since I found out my extended warranty covers it. They said a bearing had gone bad in the water pump and was causing the wobble. This affected the fan clutch, so they both had to be replaced. Good thing that warranty covered it, because the total damage ended up being $891.00. Holy Crap! Normally I wouldn't go to the dealer, but all the other shops charged $550 just like the dealer just to replace the fan clutch. Oh well.\n. \n. \nThe fan clutch failure is related to the silicone inside and parts failing and not allowing it to disengage. The constant roar of air and the sound of a jet engine is common as is the loss of power related to moving all that air all the time. Newest part Number for 2006/7 should be more reliable as these failing components have been modified.\n. \nA wobble will be a water pump bearing failure. Usually not directly associated with a fan clutch issue but great to hear they replaced both under the extended. (MORE)
Answer . \nIt takes a special wrench (available @ most parts houses). The large hex, close to the pulley , must be un-screwed. The 4 small bolts only hold on the pulley. If I remember correctly, it is a left-hand thread.
Here is the schematic diagram that shows the locations of the 2001, Ford Windstar fuses and circuit breakers,,in both the cabin (passenger compartment) and "under the hood" circuit panel boxes.

Answer . Bad fan motor? See if you are getting power to it. Bad sensor?. Bad fuse?
There are two ways, each with benefits. The first is to locate the four mounting bolts of the fan shroud on the back (engine side) of the radiator, remove them, disconnect the electrical supply to each of the fans and wrestle the shroud containing the fans out of the car. It may be necessary to loos…en the belt tensioner and move the serpentine belt out of the way. I have done it like this, but getting to all of these shroud bolts can be frustrating. The second way is to drain the radiator from the petcock located on the lower passenger side of the radiator, remove the radiator hoses (being careful when coolant wants to drain from the hoses still attached to the block), remove the transmission cooler lines, remove the four mounting bolts securing the radiator to the frame and lift the entire unit out. Remove the fans and shroud and replace. These two methods are close, because the shroud bolts can be difficult to get started once they are out while everything is still in the car. Irregardless of which method you choose, be very careful of things bumping the radiator as it is easily damaged. (MORE)
Why does your cooling fan not work on your 1986 Trans Am. I have replaced cooling sensor fan relay switch and AC clutch control switch the fan works when AC is on but not any other time?
Answer . Check to see if you are getting power to it with A/C or defroster on Try Hot wiring the motor to see if it is defective Check fuse and relay Check temperature sensor switch. XXXXXXXXXXXXXX ANSWER XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. The temperature sensor works the light or gauge. The cooling fan sw…itch works the cooling fan. If, when the air conditioner is "ON," the fan works then there is no need to hot wire it. If the coolant is low in the radiator and isn't contacting the switch, then the fan will not work. Open the radiator cap and be sure the coolant is full. You can have a full recovery tank and a low radiator and the coolant will not transfer. (MORE)
Although the Haynes says to simply disconnect the electrical plug, remove bolts, and pop it out of the retaining clips and pull out, it's not quite so simple. First off, there is only one bolt to remove almost dead center of the car. (passenger side of the fan). After removing this, you will have li…ttle to no room to maneuver it within the space given. Pop it from the clips on the right (driver) side by sliding it away from them. The top is a clip. The bottom is a square mount. Once clear of the bolt and clips, and electrical is no longer connected, you will find that it will slide (with effort) side to side. There is a ridiculously designed hanger type piece that hangs over the condenser as a type of grapple to the other side of it. In theory, lift it up "slightly" as the manual says and it should come out. That is the most under-rated instruction I've ever come across in a manual. I removed the cover to the hood latch, removed two more bolts to slide it towards the front to gain more clearance. After that, removed the two bolts securing the condenser to pop the top of the fan grapple off of it once it's movable. Then.. lift the car up into the air, and remove through the bottom. Don't bother trying through the opening at the top. You'll lose every bit of skin on your hand from hitting the solid coolant lines, transmission, starter, and wiring harness. It's impossible. After attempting this on two identical cars over a period of 7 hours, trust me. It will NOT wiggle or bend out the top. Hope this is helpful. (MORE)
The 2000 Chevy Cavalier cooling fan shroud is held in place with 10retaining bolts. Remove the retaining bolts and the cooling fanshroud will come off.
Answer . if you do not have no experience in fixing car, do not do it
Lava cools slowly because lava is a poor conductor of heat. Lava flows slow down and thicken as they harden.
I think that it takes about 1-2 minute to cool but I am not sure...
If there is no fresh supply of lava coming in, it may take a matterof hours to days. Small globs of lava will cool faster.
Right behind the battery, under the hood is a fuse box. In the fuse box there are two black relays. One is the headlamp driver module and the other is the cooling fan relay. They are right next to each other. I am not 100% sure which is which, but unplug them and put one in at a time and you will fi…nd out quick which one is the cooling fan relay. I had a bad headlamp driver module so I switched them to find it. (MORE)
It would take about 3-4 hours to cool down and 24 hours to stabilize. It is also faster if you don't turn up the temperature to max because that would only block air flow to the fridge from the freezer until the freezer gets the right temperature.
It is well documented in our forum at www.trailvoy.com It takes a few hours to complete and should probably include a water pump change if your truck is older and you plan to keep the truck for any length of time.
It will come off the same as on the 2002. See. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How do you change a fan clutch on a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer LT . ...and keep some bandaids handy.
The fan will stay engaged and not go into the coasting mode. It will always sound like a jet engine roaring and you will have reduced power. There will be a code that sets and your check engine light will eventually come on. For complete info visit our enthusiasts forum at www.trailvoy.com
Buy a spanner wrench with studs on the face to hold the pulley and a open end wrench that fits @ the fan bolt at auto parts store. Then turn the fan bolt in the direction the fan turns when the engine is on, holding the pulley with spanner wrench. And its off. Not that hard. Stan
The cooling fan relay is located below the battery on the side of the chassis. It is held by 2 small I think 8mm bolts. It is best to use a socket to remove it. You will need to remove the air box first.
Radiator Cooling Fan....From the bottom of the car. One screw at the bottom(engine side) 10mm I believe, then deal with that plastic thing at the top side,driver side. Careful of the radiator....
Check to see that the cooling fan is moving a lot of air. Sometimes they'll get slow without blowing a fuse. I've also seen new replacement fans wired backwards. Make sure the fan is pulling air through from front to back. If the fan is OK you might find out if the thermostat is working properly.
Where is the cool fan relay on a dodge stratus and how do you replace it
To remove the fan clutch in an 04 Ram 1500, hold the fan in placeusing a special fan removal tool. Turn the nut to remove the fan.The tool should be able to be rented through a local auto parts.
Actually, quartz is one of the last minerals to cool under the surface. Because of this, the quartz tends to fill in all of the empty spaces in the solidfying magma, causing it to often come out in flakes, or oddly shaped chunks. Not all igneous rocks cool slowly, and this factor is just dependent o…n whether or not the rock is intrusive (still under ground) or extrusive (above or near the surface). Because obviously if a rock is underground, with all of the hot magma, it is going to take thousands of years for it to cool completely. While the air of the atmosphere that humans live in is way cooler than underground, so obviously it is going to take less time to cool it. So in closing, it just depends where the quartz is at in the Earth's crust. But, if it is in the Earth's crust, it usually is one of the last minerals to cool, making quartz unique. (MORE)
A meteorites is usually cold when it reaches the surface. When ameteor enters the atmosphere it is briefly subjected to intenseheat. This heat goes into melting the surface of the meteor, whichis then quickly stripped away by drag. As a result, relativelylittle heat penetrates into the interior, whi…ch is cold from itstime in space. By the time a meteor enters the lowest layer of theatmosphere it will have slowed to terminal velocity and so therewill be no appreciable frictional heating. (MORE)
A pavlova is best cooled in the oven. It takes around an hour (or maybe a little more) to cool, with the oven door slightly open.
It will take not very long once it has arrived in the post. Dj Coco (BJC) Wrote this.
The length of time it takes to cool a freshly-baked pie depends on the size of the pie and the temperature of the kitchen, or the room where you're cooling the pie. Cooling a pie in the refrigerator might be necessary if the day is hot and humid, but otherwise put the pie, in its dish, on a cake-ra…ck placed over the sink. This allows good airflow and kitchen sinks are normally placed near windows. Open the windows in your kitchen and, if you don't have insect screens, put a net dome over the pie. Depending on the type of pie you might need to remove it from the dish when it's cooled slightly, and return it to the rack until it's reached the desired temperature. If you simply want to cool the pie to a temperature comfortable for eating you might need to leave it for ten or twenty minutes. If you want it fully cold, refrigerate it as soon as it's no longer hot to the touch; it might need fifteen minutes to half an hour to become cold. (MORE)
Best I can tell, you first have to disconnect the air conditioning components to allow enough space to pull out the fan and it's housing. And that is an entirely separate subject.
If radiator cooling fan it turns on only when temperature sensor reaches temp needed to cool car, then when enough cooling takes place, it gets told by sensor to turn off.
With many cars now days, the fan may continue to run after the car is shut off, or they may even start and run for a while after the car is shut off. An engine will actually get hotter for a short time after being shut off. Sometimes that will trigger a sensor to turn on the cooling fan. If it co…ntinually runs after being shut off, it could be a faulty temperature sensor, or a faulty fan relay, or even a bad computer. (MORE)
Yes you can, Take the bay out, find the fan, put the fan in and make sure to use the correct volts to your fan. may want to make it an external switch. as setting it up on your computer may be difficult, couple things you can do. look at your internal fan, buy the same model, mod it, then solder th…ose wires to your internal fan wire and position your fans. (have done this) (MORE)
Try checking the fan grounds located on the passenger side of the car up front. It's under the air conditioning line hold down bracket.
Just did this myself on my 2002 TB. Not sure how old your question is... but for future reference (since I don't see any other related help out there for this thing, most people just change out the entire fan clutch): Step 1: Loosen the bolts that attach the Radiator Fan to the Fan Clutch. … So... you're standing in front of the vehicle, looking down at the engine. There are 4 bolts. It doesn't take much to loosen them, and then pull them out by hand. Put them in a safe place. (Sip a beer at this point) This allows you to gently nudge the plastic fan blade assembly off the clutch and towards the engine. It's ok, it worked just fine. Just don't be rough with the fan blades, you don't want to break anything. Step 2: Loosen the bolts attaching the Fan Shroud to the Radiator Assembly. Two bolts... notice in the middle of the shroud, there's a little thing that hooks onto the Radiator Assembly. Once unbolted, you're going to have to shimmy and lift this shroud up and backwards into the same area that the fan blade is now resting. Towards the engine, and away from the Radiator. (TRICK: Undo the Radiator Return Hose on the Left side, the big fat thing... you will lose some coolant, make sure there are no cats in the area. And wash the driveway down after you;'re done so you don't kill any kittens. I had it undone only long enough to work the shroud off. Then I hooked it all back up.) WARNING:!!!!!! THE RADIATOR IS NOW UNPROTECTED... EITHER COVER IT WITH CARDBOARD, OR BE SUPER CAREFUL. NO TOOLS CLOSE TO IT, OTHERWISE YOU'LL PUNCTURE IT AND HATE YOURSELF UNTIL NEXT PAYDAY. AND THEN HATE YOURSELF SOME MORE. (Didn't actually do it, but I've read some nasty stories of folks screwing up here) STEP 3: You can now readily see the Fan Clutch Wiring Harness. Mounted to this spindle arm, and the other end to the Fan Shroud. Unhook the Fan Shroud side, and pop the plastic fastener that's securing it. I lost it in the engine, so I used a zip tie to resecure it later.There's two clips that also keep it secured, you can pinch those on the inside to loosen. STEP 4: Moving your attention to the Fan Clutch side of the harness. You can move the spindle arm to get at the harness easier. NO big deal. Carefully feed each individual wire that's on the Fan Clutch side through the slot on the spindle arm. Once that's done, you can yank the entire Harness out of there... if you've been throwing codes and seeing the reduced power light, you'll notice that the wires are either frayed, or one of them has disconnected from the wire harness adapter all together. STEP 5: Reverse the process with your $100 brand spanking wire harness. Getting the new one on is pretty quick, with the spindle arm slowing you down somewhat. Be careful here, you don't want to pull out any wires. STEP 6: Once your harness is attached and secured to both the Spindle Arm side and the Fan Shroud side, carefully remount everything. STEP 7: Breathe... take a swig of beer, you haven't screwed up the Radiator, and the hard parts are all but done. The shroud show now be attached to the Radiator Assembly. Align your Radiator Fan to the holes in the Fan Clutch. Hand feed, then tighten in cross pattern. DOn't over tighten. But make it secure. STEP 8: Remove all tools and recheck everything. Good? Done. STEP 9: Start your engine. The Fan clutch will be engaged and you'll notice the airflow coming off the FAN. This is normal. Go to your OBD reader and clear your codes (Amazon, cheap...) Close your hood. Take a drive. When your engine is at operating temp, you'll notice that you don't sound like a jet engine. STEP 10: after a short test drive... return home. Wash your dirty grimy hands. Enjoy your beer. Took me an hour and half to do this. (MORE)
it's a matter of how long it takes your car, or truck to come the "warm up" point, of usually around fifteen to twenty minutes.
Four bolts hold it on the clutch if it has one and 4 bolts hold it on front of water pump. Just remove them.
It cools mainly the Central Processing Unit (CPU), as well as the other components close to it. The CPU gets very hot, due to the speed at which it operates. This heat is dispersed with the fan on top of the CPU. There is also a fan incorporated within the power supply - this also helps to remove ex…cess heat from within the computer. (MORE)
yes you can remove the fan clutch without removing the rad. it is tight but it can be done. it is easier with the Rad removed
To replace the Engine cooling fan relay on a 1988 Deville you need to remove the radiator. After the radiator is out you will see the relay, disconnect it pull it out and install the new one.
