Oldsmobile Bravada Check Engine Light and/or Excessive Fan Noise

(4 reports)

The cooling fan clutch may fail causing excessive fan noise and/or the Check Engine Light to illuminate.

sounds like something under the hood making a noise I was told it could be a dust pan car a flywheel making that noise but could not find anything after it was on the left and on the rear I feel like something is making a and when you take off its making a bad noise I was told it might be my drive shaft with a left at that and said it was not the drive shaft I replace the motor mounts and that would take care of the noise I've been said my transmission mount one was bad that that need to be replaced so I really don't know what's going on -
On my way from Connecticut to Alabama the "CHECK ENGINE SOON" light came on. The coolant temperature never went above normal. I asked ONSTAR for a diagnosis and was told the power train cooling fan registered a fault. Since it was Saturday and no dealer was open, I was referred to a local "PEP BOYS" service center in Knoxville, TN and there I was told the fan clutch mechanism needed to be replaced. I authorized this work and had it done to the tune of $640. They told me they couldn't clear the fault code and told me to take the car to a dealer. Upon my return to Connecticut I took the car to my mechanic who cleared the fault code only to have the light come on again the next time I started the engine. I was told the problem was probably in the electrical circuitry and to bring the car back and leave it the next day. That is where we are at this point. -
