1992-1996 Bronco Fan Clutch - 5.0/5.8
Have your cooling system back in order in your 1992-1996 Bronco fan clutch with this fan clutch! When the engine is cool or even at normal operating temperature, the fan clutch partially disengages your Bronco's cooling fan, located at the front of the water pump and driven by the serpentine belt. This saves power since your engine does not have to drive the cooling fan at full speed. When your Bronco's engine temperature rises above the fan clutch's engagement temperature, the fan becomes engaged and draws more air through your Bronco's radiator, which lowers the coolant temperature to an acceptable level.
Fan Clutch Failure
When your Bronco fan clutch fails normally, it will stop engaging and allow the fan to spin freely, not pulling in the air required to cool your Bronco's engine. This will cause your engine to overheat and your air conditioning to stop cooling because the air conditioner's condenser is in front of your Bronco radiator. Though not as common, another symptom of fan clutch failure is when the fan clutch is locked up or always 100% engaged. If this happens during winter, the heater will blow lukewarm air instead of hot air.
