I am hearing an occaisional high pitched rattle & looking around notice that the engine fan has a liottle play in it.
Don't have any books on this car yet, as it's only a week old to me, and now it's too dark to pull the shroud off to inspect it & the mosquitoes are eating me up out side.
Any advise on what to look for in the morning? Can the attachment bolts to the fan clutch be loose? Doesn't appear to be the water pump.I don't even know how the fan is mated to the clutch.
The previous owner put in a new radiator water pump pulley, & idler bearings. Maybe he had the fan off & didn't tighten everything up?
By the way...thanks all for the advise on the cell phone/radar detectors......they work fine.
Thanks in advance:
