Man, I was expecting to hear an RK supercharger blast you to the moon! lol
I coded out my safety switch on accident, and it caught me off guard one day! Startled the piss out of me!
The way I understand it, the clutch fan will have more friction when it is cold, so until it runs a bit, it will be more connected to the pulley. Once the fluids in there warm a bit, then it will be much less connected and freewheel on the pulley until it is hot enough to begin engaging more and more, to finally cool down by the amount of air coming through and cooling it and the water in the radiator core.
Dimi, if you hear the whine all the time (but in 4,5, and 6 there is more and more road noise) then it could be locked up. One of the problems people have seen. This means, you would hear it sitting in your driveway.
If you had to say "it is coming from ______," what area of the car would you fill in the blank with?
Is it coming from the engine bay? below you? Does the pitch of the whine change with the engine speed, or does it change with road speed??
