Has anyone had problems with the 7.3 fan clutch staying partially engaged. Last couple of times I drove the truck, ECT was at 190 and I could hear the fan roaring & could feel the drag on the engine. I can turn the fan by hand, but definitely feel some resistance - I always thought the fan should spin freely when cold? Clutch is less than a year old, but was bought on rockauto, so might not be of the highest quality. Any suggestions other than replacement?

If you can hear it roaring when at operating temp, its bad. Most of the time fan clutches just dont lock up, but sometimes they stay locked.

I would buy a new one.
