Why does my truck run funny once in a while
I bought a 2000 Chevy suburban 2500 last year. Got full tune up on it battery.
my secondary car so I don't drive it as much. But when I do it makes a weird
rubbing sound like a helicopter is taking off inside the truck. I noticed it when I
got stuck in traffic a few times. When I brought it to the dealer they said fan
clutch. Got that fixed and a week later same sound. Brought it back, they had
for a week and said sorry we can't find anything. I drove it for a few days to
if I could make it happen again and nothing happened. Then just the other
happened for a few min. I have no clue. Any ideas?
I do believe they are right, when in slow moving traffic your motor is heating up. The fan clutch works on temperature to help keep the motor cool, kicking the fan on a 1 to 1 ratio, other wise the fan is just free wheeling to help the motor on drag of the pulley system, witch decreases gas mileage.
