Car is noiiser after I changed the fan clutch on my Rodeo v6 2001. I used a aftermarket one from autozone. Is the original that much better than the new one?

It sounds like the heater blower on high. It is much louder though. The character of the sound seems like it peaks at a much lower engine speed also than the old fan before it started making noise.


I have heard from another forum that the generic fan that autozone sells is clutched in the wrong direction for my car which means I'm also wasting gas.

I bought the new style fan and clutch. The new fan has a stamp mark that looks like it matches a molded protusion on the clutch. It would have been nice to have it say radiator side or cooling clutch side. Anybody know exactlyhow it goes.
