Acura for Superior Fan Clutch Performance

By: Evander Klum

Acura is known as one of the many brands of the Japanese carmaker, Honda. Acura, though, distinguishes itself from the rest with the reputation it has garnered through its cars. As the luxury division of Honda, Acura has been widely recognized for providing the consumer public with vehicles that never fail to demonstrate compelling performance. Engine power is at a high, as always. Comfort, too, is a given when Acura cars are involved. Indeed, comfort is its middle name of a considerable number of Acura car models and one can be sure that these cars will never fail to deliver in this regard.

Efficiency is another quality of Acura cars as well. This often makes Acura parts stand out from all the others. Parts like the Acura Fan Clutch, for example, can always be counted on to afford commendable performance. Indeed, great are the minds behind the invention of the fan clutch. Designed to provide much needed cooling for the engine, the Acura Fan Clutch is that small fluid coupling component that comes along with a thermostatic device which controls the variable-speed fan, in turn. This guarantees that the fan will rotate at just the proper speed to keep engine of the car from overheating.

Also, when the engine is cool or at normal operating temperature, the Acura Fan Clutch is designed to partially disengage the mechanically-driven radiator cooling fan of the engine. This cooling fan is typically located at the front of the water pump. It is normally driven by a belt and pulley linked to the engine's crankshaft. The partial disengagement of the cooling fan allows the Acura Fan Clutch to conserve power so the engine does not have to unnecessarily spend energy.

The function of the though is not limited to these. If the temperature of the air circulating through the radiator rises and the heat alerts a bimetal coil spring to "uncoil" or expand, chances are, a wee bit of oil may have found its way intot he fluid coupling. When this occurs, happens, it's the duty of the fluid coupling from the Acura Fan Clutch to start rotating the fan. But when the temperature is cool, what happens is the exact opposite of the process. The coil springs contract, letting the oil leave the fluid coupling and then the fan slows down. With this function occurs, the Acura Fan Clutch naturally slows down, decreases fuel consumption, creates less noise, and saves the power of the engine. Thus, luxurious looks, comfortable seats, and impressive features are not all responsble for Acura's reputation of luxury. Performance, drive, engine power, and definitely parts like the Acura Fan Clutch also have a great deal to do with it.
