Help! LOUD fan noise!
I hope this is an easy fix.
About a week ago my engine became really loud; louder than it ever has been. I thought maybe the auxiliary fan was permanently on as it sounds like fan noise. The engine doesnít sound bad at all; just loud! The volume increases with speed; at idle, the engine sounds normal but the sound gets louder as I accelerate. If I hit the kick-down itís it sounds like engine is over-revving but the tachometer is still around 2000rpm. The engine is not overheating.
Itís just a loud blowing noise. Is this the fan clutch? Is it somehow spinning faster than it should?
Iíve heard it make this sound a few times since I got it 3 years ago right after starting it up, but it would go away after a couple minutes.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
