Q: The fan clutch will not disengage.

asked by on March 02, 2017

My fan clutch will not disengage after a while and it keeps running.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there. The fluid that is inside the fan clutch has leaked out and is no longer keeping the clutch is a slipping mode until it gets hot. I recommend replacing the fan clutch assembly. If you need further assistance with your fan clutch, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
