Im new to the forum so bar w/me if there are answer aready out there for my question. but to get to the point i recently had a blade brake off my fan, and was wondering if it would be a bad idea for me to drive about two hours back to my home town to get worked on. or will it, being unbalanced cuase more problems for me?should i breake them all off? i dont have the tools here w/me at school to take it off, thanks for the input.
If you continue to drive it with a broken fan,it will kill the viscous coupling, kill the water pump and if your very unlucky the fan will explode sending bits of it through your bonnet, belts, radiator etc etc. You have been !WARNED!.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
thats what i was going to do but i dont have the rench to do that that why i woundering if breaking the rest of them off would help balance it. the drive is 90% highway what do you think you that balance it?
don't brake them all, brake only one from opposite side of already broken one, this will balance the fan if number of blades are even, or will left only a slightly imbalance if number of blades are odd.
