View Full Version : Radiator Fan squealing - Sounds like hamster running in wheel

The fan has a slight annoying squeal. When I turn off the car, and the fans are still running, it sounds like a hamster is running in a wheel.

Last time, I pulled the fan out, sprayed it with WD-40, and it made the sound worse. So, I replcaced with low mileage one from junk yard. Was good for a year or so, now this one is doing the same thing!

Is there an aftermarket one that will bolt right up, or better way to get it to stop squealing? Thanks for the help!

take out the motor there might some dirt or a leave or something in there

WD40 is good for breaking things free but not so good for lubrication. Try some3 in 1 oil or 10W. The blower motor had busings and they soak up the oil.

It was the motor on the passenger side radiator fan. I purcahsed a new motor from Autozone. It was the same exact motor at Checker's, but at half the cost. Popped in, good as new.
