About 3 years ago I replaced the radiator with a new one from Rovers North, a new fan clutch, a new thermostat, and a new water pump. Couple months ago (May) I was driving on the interstate and the water pump decided to quit. From that I replaced the water pump again and everything ran perfectly fine. Until now in August I noticed the temperature gauge on the dash started reading hot whenever I'm in traffic only. Thought the fan clutch was going bad and replaced that again. The temperature in Virginia Beach was reading in the high 90's to 104 degrees but still in the past D 90 ran fine. Now it still reads 90% hot and I'm wondering if the new fan clutch I ordered have a defect! I will call Rovers North tomorrow and see what they think. Am I missing something here or have anyone experienced this?

Buy a genuine fan clutch... I have seen more bad prolines out of the box then good ones!

hmm, the AB one might not be genuine. I would definitely ask.

AB would be selling the same one, I would definitely test it, I've seen enough of them fail. We've since switched suppliers to the OE fan clutch, no failures since; but the price has increased accordingly. Or buy Genuine
