As I reported to the list before, my early SIII (same fan and
clutch as the SII - RPM activated) spins for a full 2 seconds on
shutdown, and my temps are to warm again. I am on my THIRD OEM
Here is what SII owners reported to me:
‘‘The fan & fan clutch on a S2 are 2 separate items.
The fan should stop the same as your S3 on shutdown i.e. should
only rotate about 1 - 1/2 turns.’’
‘‘The fan will stop direct after shutdown’’
‘‘The fan definitely kept turning after the engine stopped. I
would estimate about half a second, and just a few revolutions.’’
‘‘It will spin some after shutdown. Maybe 1 or 2 revolutions.
Perhaps a bit more but never 6 or 7.Mine spins for less than 1
‘‘Mine spins for less than 1 second’’
‘‘The fan clutch didn’t pinwheel. It stopped within about a
half second of shutdown. Probably much the same as your S3.’’
Soooooo, what the heck is going on with mine. The inner race lis
locked to the pump shaft and DOES stop with the pump. But the
rest of the clutch and fan spin on for 2 seconds, unlike the
I have tried the '‘reverse the step washer’ routine, to no avail.
Anyone have a clue what the problem might be? Until I can
eliminate the fan clutch as the culprit, I can’t effectively
troubleshoot my warm running problem.
