Bad clutch fan?
No fan clutch on this car.
The 2000-2002 use a hydraulic fan system. A hydraulic pump is driven by the engine and two hoses go to a hydraulic motor that spins the fan. Fan speed is controlled by the PCM using a solenoid valve. Problems with this setup are common and the bill to fix it is often in the $1000 range. One issue is that people at the iffy-lube places will put antifreeze in the hydraulic fan reservoir because it has a fan symbol on it, and because the radiator fill is located at the base of the windshield.
The 2003-2006 have an electric fan setup, and that seems to be trouble free.
