Question is, Is the fan not turning on due to low freon or is the compressor cycling more due to the fan not working properly?

New to this issue. Though I have seen posts about the fan. I thought I would try this question.

the fan needs to and should be on at all times if the a/c is on. if the fan is not spinning the truck will not cool off at all, the compressor will kick in and out rapidly and you will hear this almost whistling sound from the passenger side. o'reilly has them for 30 and the dealer is somewhere in the $125 range. i had an oreilly one go bad the next day and went oe mopar.

also, in the manual, they specify you have to remove an a/c line, drain and recharge the system. if you get creative with a pair of dikes on the shroud you can remove everything without having to drain and recharge.
