its a liquid filled fan clutch. If it is not engaging you should also check to see that it is getting to a temperature where it should engage. If you have a plugged radiator or a thermostat that is sticking the fan clutch may never get to a temp where it will engage. I would suggets having the entire system looked over by a professional. you dont want to take any risks with your engine.
