Codes ?Temps have cooled off into the low 60s here and my coolant temps pretty much never get over 180. Yesterday the fan was roaring as cruised around town with a 175 coolant temp...finally annoyed enough to schedule an appointment and start complaining until its fixed.
Potentially related, any chance an engaged fan clutch would cause a hard start? My van has always fired right up but its actually failed to fire a few time lately and seems like its hard for it to turn over at times. I can always get it to fire on a second go round but something is off. Wondering if drag from the fan if its engaged is making that initial start more difficult?
Batteries are less than a year old and in good shape.
Cables tight with no corrosion ? The positive end for the frame rail battery are known to corrode basically leaving you with just 1 battery.
What exactly do you mean by hard starting so I understand better ?
