    hey guys, ive got a little issue on the 02 listed in my sig, haven't have too much time to really look at it yet but im just seeing if anyone has ideas. the fan hits the shroud when its running, however if i stand on the front bumper it stops. nothing seems obviously loose or bent, i dont think its motor mounts but i will check. just seeing if anyone else has come across this.

    Did you check the frame? Sorry to say but it's probably broken. Just noticed it doesn't have a plow, maybe the front body mounts are loose?

    No electric fans on those I think, fan clutch or water pump?

    Bad body mounts on front fenders or cab. Front frame bent up for small collision. I have a 01 2500 , that the frame is bent up from plowing. Had to cut bottom of fan shround off with sawzall.

    Broken driver side motor mount/frame or a broken trans cross member. Doesn't happen often and it requires some hard pounding to have issues with them but I'll assure you it's one or the other.
