Default Noisy fan "03 DC

The fan on my DC is louder than normal but working fine..no overheating, no codes. Is there a oiling point on there, maybe pull the blades and a few drops on the shaft? Is that a sign of impending death is on the way...lol. Just wondering. Thanks!

It's DOOMED
To start I would check the plastic surrounding the motor and blades for cracks. Such as where the bolts secure it to the radiator

No cracks in plastic anywhere....all the bolts are tight. Seems to be getting better not as loud as when I got it. This car sat for at least a year without running, could that have anything to do with it....maybe just needs to run again? No overheating issues, no codes....any more ideas?

If it is a Turbo car that's a big dollar fan that's cratering on you.
My 03 Dreamer has been converted to a regular 2-speed fan and I haven't finished the wiring yet. However, before the overheat problem happened it ran and drove just fine for 3 months. Turned out the wiring done was poor so I'm improving the situation. Hope to have it back on the street next week when the new overflow bottle gets here.
I'd like to spend some money on gas rather than just parts.
