found this on the other site, sorry.
I am still haveing problems and found a post with the exact problems I am haveing, I printed it off and I am going to the dealer tomorrow to see what they can do.
It seems every time I have the plow on I go through this . I have too pull over to the side of the road, put truck in neutral , and rev the crap out of it to finally get the fan clutch to engage. When it does the tranny and engine temp come down, very fast. Then I;m good for the rest of the day. But once the truck cools, I go throught it again. heres what I found on the other site....below. any input



Recently I posted this issue. There was good response. I suggested people call my Chevy dlr. and talk to the service dept because as it turns out other dealers couldn't help. Well, to say the least there has been a big response. So big, my service manager has asked for people to stop calling for info. SORRY. He said any dealer in the country has the same info as him, and should be able to help you. He said that there is/are TSB's (techinal service bullitens covering this. I would also like to give the new part # for the new fan clutch that should be put into the vehicle.... GM part #22149894. Sorry for the trouble, but he was recieving so many calls that it was hurting his ability to do his job. My last piece of advice is if you go to your dealer with this info and they still can't help call the cust. assistance center 800# listed in the back of your owners manual. Thank you for your understanding. I still can't believe that there were this many dealers out there that were unwilling to help their customers.

You probably need the fan changed also. It was changed under warranty.. check with your dealer.
good luck
