I bought a coolant temp sensor from NAPA. Is there a way to tell if the fan clutch is going out? I have some oil leaking from the front of it. When the Jeep is up to operating temp and i'm parked and raise the RPMs should the fan spin faster as the RPMs rise to cool the engine? What about after I turn the engine off after the Jeep was up to temperature, should the fan spin freely? If so how freely? Should there be any type of resistance? If there is resistance should the resistance be the same whether the engine is hot or cold? This could be the culprit because it seems like the water pump is working fine and the radiator seems to be flowing coolant, maybe just not as fast as it should. But if anyone could chime in on how to test my fan clutch i would appreciate it!
