Is the engine hot? If so the fan is doing its job.

no, the temperature is normal

The fans should come on at preset temperature and then cycle off once the fans cool things down a bit. Are the fans coming on and off or do they stay on all the time?

only 50,000 miles on it. also the heater is blowing cold air.

the fan gets loud after about 15 minutes of driving. it has never done this before.

If you have a clutch fan the clutch is probably bad. The heater problem may be a bad thermostat or air in the system.

both symtoms seemed to be linked because they began at the same time.

If the engine is running hot the fan will come on more. Maybe you should service the cooling system.

Is the fan electric? If so it could be a defective pressure switch on the AC compressor.

I have a f- 150 2013. Both cooling fans run all the time after 160 degrees. They changed the water pump. Then the shit started. Before that they never kicked on

I have the same issue. I HAVE to turn my car off to go through drivethrus. Its embarassingly loud, my wife says she can hear me coming. Father in law even commented on it. Didn't do this in the beginning but now that fan runs so hard. Took it to the dealership. They say some wire on the fan burnt out.

I have the same issue as well. I have a 2012 Ford F150 Fx4. There is a fan noise coming from my engine compartment that is really loud. The fan kicks on and off. Also when I am stopped or moving really slow my truck is blowing cold air even though I have the theromstat set on heat. Spectrum_7968 did you ever figure out what was wrong with your truck?
