Q: Radiator fan making noise when running

asked by on

The radiator fan is making a noise when it is on. It might be the bearing.

The fan motor turns very fast, and these motors do go bad after continued use; five or six years is a good life span, you made it nine years. I recommend having a mechanic such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the noise from your radiator fan to identify and quote the repairs needed.
