Usually replacement is required if overheating is occurring during idle,but you should change the thermostat first,make sure the drive belt is good as well as tight.If idle is too slow under load,this will also cause this symtom,low idle speed with air conditioning on will aggravate this problem as well.

Hope this helps

How do you remove the fan clutch of a 1995 Geo Tracker?

HI, The first question I need to know is, have you removed the fan yet? And why do you want to remove the clutch? Are you trying to replace the fan/clutch assy? If you have not removed the fan/clutch then here's how to get that out. First drain the cooling system so the coolant is below the upper radiator hose. Take the upper hose off of the radiator. remove all of the fan shroud retaining fasteners. Loosen all of the fan/clutch mounting fasteners. remove the water pump drive belt. Remove the fan/clutch mounting fasteners, then lift the fan/clutch and fan shroud out together. Then remove the clutch however you can. Reverse what you did to replace everything and replace the coolant. This could be a good time to replace all your coolant if it hasn't been done for as while. Good luck and if you need more help, we hope you'll clarify your question. Steve H.

You might need to loosen the belt so you can turn the fan and get to all 4 bolts. With the unit removed you can then remove and replace the fan on the clutch assy. Reinstall in the reverse order.

Fan clutch is not tight how can i fix this?

Answermost times a fan clutch only feels loose if the bearings are worn out. this means you need to replace it. would be more helpful if you say where it is loose, as the fan screws (left hand thread) onto the fan clutch.the clutch mounts to the water pump,and has drive pullyso it could even be the water pump that is worn outAlso, if you are referring to the fact that the fan spins freely, it is supposed to until the clutch engages it when it's needed. A clutch fan does not always spin when the engine is running and is not supposed to.
