    Nope, I've heard of a few 05's with the fan clutch problem's yet. Seem's like the 06's are Ok though........so far!:rolleyes:
     
  3. Whats up with fan clutch? It sounds as though theres an inherint problem. What are symptoms? I may be having problems too...

    My '02 acts up occasionally...seems to stay locked up...dont know how to explain...dont even know how they work...but it seems wierd..like its pulling air when it shouldnt be. Mine only seems to happen with the plow up...maybe I'm creating some sorta vacuum, fighting the fan, when driving down the road at speed from air rushing over plow creating negative pressure space in front of radiator....???? Yesterday, i saw/smelled burning rubber from belt maybe? Could be something completely unrelated I suppose...

    Hey guys i had the same problem on my chevy 05HD it was overheating with the plow on so the chevy dealership solved the problem by putting a heavy duty clutch fan and assembly and they reprogrammed the computer for the fan to come on more often when the plow is on it fix the problem 100 % the only thing is it makes the engine sound alittle louder then normal and the truck uses alittle more gas than normal.

    The problem is the person on the assembly line who is supposed to change the fan clutch on the preassembled engine prior to installing it into a truck with the VYO option.

    Is the fan clutch an actual recall, my warranty is up, if i have the same problem will it be covered or will i have to pay?? how hard is it to replace yourself??

    Yes, if you take the truck in to the dealer he'll check to see if it has the "correct" clutch on it. If it doesn't, they'll change it out under the TSB notice, warranty or not. Some of them like to kick and scream but if you put up a fight, they'll take care of it. If your truck is a non plow prep or it already has the correct clutch then your S.O.L. if it's outta warranty. As far a changing it yourself, it's not hard to do.

    If you have the VYO option and the wrong fan clutch, your dealer my help you out. If they don't, It's an easy job. Upper fan shrould(sp), remove serpentine belt, then unscrew clutch/fan assembly, then 4 bolts to take fan blade off clutch.
