I have an 86 W126 420. The engine fan is really loud, especially in park or neutral. I am guessing that they have redesigned the fans over the years to make them quieter. Would it be possible to fit a fan from a newer model to mine to make it quieter? Thanks for any help.

Re: i also have an '86 420 SEL and my fan is quiet. must be something wrong w/yours

Hey...well mine is only loud when it is not in gear. Like if the car is idling in Park or neutral, it is really noisy. I watched the fan, and it isn't damaged or shaking or anything. Does yours have a fan shroud? Mine doesn't...do you think that this may have something to do with the extra noise? Thanks
