    My fan clutch went out at 5169 miles. Look at the fan while it’s turning. On the side toward the engine, look and see if it has a darker color stripe on the blades in one particular spot. Mine had grease running out of the clutch. Feel around on the fan blades. The grease in the clutch is very sticky.
    But the grease is clear and will only show up when it gets dirty.

    Another old-timey trick to check a belt for slippage was to use an old toothbrush and toothpaste. Just get some paste onto the belt while it's running and you'll know if the noise goes away. NOTE: this only a temporary, troubleshooting fix, but works on clothes dryer belts, v-belts, serpentine belts etc. Use care of course. :893karatesmiley-thu
