Asked by Sep 11, 2014 at 09:35 PM about the 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada 4 Dr STD AWD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Radiator was replaced within the last year

3 Answers


Sounds like the clutch on your fan needs replaced. With vehicle turned off grab fan blade and give it a spin. Should only turn just a little then stop. If it freely spins then it needs to be replaced.


Have you checked the fluid level in the radiator? Always check the level when the engine is cold.
