When it comes to the performance and safety of your truck or fleet, you have to consider that from the orifice tube in your AC to the drivetrain; all repairs are equally important. But your engine and your fan clutch should take a high priority and should be repaired immediately.
The science behind this is simple: there’s a lot of pressure on your engine, and your fan clutch kicks in to cool things down before the engine overheats. Whether you have got a thermal, non-thermal, or electronic fan clutch, this critical part will need some attention at some point.
Whether it needs an efficiency upgrade or repair, it would be best if you didn’t suffer the cost of extensive repairs or downtime. Get in touch with our experts at Diesel Components, Inc. to repair your Engine Fan Clutch and drive with peace.
LET’S KNOW A LITTLE MORE ABOUT FAN CLUTCHES:
A fan clutch with a mounted fan ensures that engines do not exceed certain operating temperatures, which the manufacturer usually sets. A bimetallic sensor system or electronic control is there to detect the temperature. You should also know that the two terms, fan clutch and fan drive, are interchangeable.
Although the engine drives the fan clutch, it is designed to stay “idle” in off mode and turn on (with the engine as the primary force) as the engine temperature increases. There are three basic types of fan clutches, each of which offers various advantages in terms of function and price: automatic clutches, two-speed clutches, and variable-speed clutches.
