  • The non-thermal fan clutches are always engaged and spin at about thirty to sixty percent water pump speed.
  • They cannot replace heavy duty clutches.
  • Provide a shorter lifespan.

2. Fan Clutch Thermal Fan Clutch -  Senses the temperature of the air behind the radiator to vary the fan speed. Provides two speeds;

  • High Speed (engaged) - provides cooling to the max capacity.

3. Electronic Fan Clutch - the electronic-viscous clutches engagement is controlled by the signal that tells the internal solenoid to open up and allow silicone drive fluid to go between the storage reservoir and the area that tells the clutch to engage. The signal sent to engage the clutch could be sent by a variable of other engine parts signals like the;
