I have a 2003 Dodge Dakota 3.9L V6. When I accelerate from a stop, there is a loud fan noise until I reach about 20-30 mph. From what I gather, it is the fan clutch. I recently had the fan clutch replaced, after which it started making this noise. The mechanic that replaced it said the one I had before was faulty, and that a functioning one should sound this way. He said "It'll sound like the engine is overworking itself, but it's not. It's just the new fan." Is it supposed to act like this, or was I lied to?
