Help to ID fan

From a 2002 E350 7.3L, the fan in this photo sits just behind the winch (mounted within the void of the front bumper) and just below the trans cooler. The wiring traces back into the cab, driver side, and likely connects up to the fuse block but I canít see for certain.

What is it for? It seems to be seized, but van operation has been normal. Not sure for how long itís been inoperable.

Help to ID fan

Most likely an aftermarket auxiliary fan to help with cooling. Rig was maybe used for towing by previous owner. If you need or want a replacement, a larger trans cooler from tru-cool is much more effective as is a larger capacity trans pan from mag-hytec

Thx for the feedback. To clarify, the fan is below the trans cooler. In other words, f it ran it would not actually blow air on the transmission cooling coil.

Do you have a StarCool AC? Looks like the front fan for that.

I do, as REF points out below. And, now that I compare them, it looks nearly identical to the fan unit on the coil under driver side door. Thx for the help.
