The other day after I parked my car and the radiator fan stayed on for a minute or so after I turned the engine off (normal). About fifteen seconds before it shut off it started making an annoying squeaking/whining sound. If I had to explain it better, I would just say that I was in the garage at the time and when I heard the sound, at first I thought there was someone using a circular saw on some boards a couple houses down. The fan shut off and the sound was gone.
The next day I drove around a little and didn't notice the noise. Sometime, I came up to a red light, the fan kicked on and I heard the squeaking sound. Other than that I haven't heard it again.
Has anyone else had an experience like this? Is this a sign of something going terribly wrong? Maybe this has to do with the cold weather? Thanks for any help!
