Fan Clutch Problem

Yesterday my radiator drain plug blew out and spewed fluid everywhere. I got it fixed and home today. I checked the radiator after it cooled down and added antifreeze. I cranked up and noticed the fan wasn't turning. I let the motor heat up and added more antifreeze but the fan never started turning. I removed the fan, replaced the bolts and cranked back up. The shaft is turning. I can hold the fan in my hand and turn the shaft. Is it gone? Do I need a new fan clutch? How do I test it?

If you can hold the fan then yes, your fan clutch is bad, you should have tension on fan if you spin with engine off.

Patience and perseverance have a magical affect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
