Got it. I am doing a trans flush then seeing how it will run. If nothing changes I will start on the tranny pull and looking for a replacement. Decided to change the belts and check for any worn pulleys that need replacement. Took the four small nut heads off and the fan is refusing to come of. Two of the taps came off by themselves and two others came out with the studs attached. The fan assembly will not budge off of it's corresponding pulley.. Is there some way to dislodge it. I can't believe it is stuck like this? What could be holding it in place now that the bolts have been removed???

Tappy tap tap.

Use a hammer and a chisel to gently force a gap between the fan hub and the pulley/water pump.

If you wanna wait overnight, spray it with Kroil or some other good penetrating fluid. Follow the instructions, but usually with penetrants like that, you spray it, then give a whack to hopefully cause some micro-fractures that the oil can get into.
