Q: Fan sounds like it is hitting something.

asked by on

My car is making a noise like the fan is hitting something. My Check Engine light is also on.

Hi there. It sounds like maybe you have a bearing worn out on a pulley or the fan bearing may be worn out. This will definitely cause the pulley or fan to sound like if it hitting another component on the vehicle. I would have a technician from YourMechanic come out and inspect your fan and pulleys for damage and inspect the Check Engine light on the dashboard.
