Question About My Fan
After that wreck I had I slowly drove my Camaro home with the engine bay sounding messed up and louder, but not directly from the engine. Hood was stuck so I just hoped I'd make it home. Well it turned out that since the core support bent, the fan shroud was lifted up some and it was hitting the shroud all along the bottom. Even turning it by hand isnt very easy. You have to really push it by. So my question is, could the fan clutch or anything be damaged? The fan itself looks fine except that you can see at the end of each blade that its been brushing by something hard. Should I take it for a spin around the neighbor hood to see how it runs without the fan shroud?
By the way, can I get in any serious trouble with the law if I take my car out on the road to test it for a few minutes? I have the front clip(that means headlights), bumper, and d/s fender off. I can still have my blinkers on the car. I just need to check for any other suspension or steering problems before I even begin to start putting it together.
