Yo, so I have an 03 pathfinder. Upon cold start up my fanclutch is engaged for about a solid minute until it disengaged. It stays disengaged for a while until I hit a highway or try to drive up hill in which it kicks on high, causing me to loose tremendous horsepower to the point I can hardly accelerate. Just tapping the accelerator launches it to 3k rpm but doesn't further accelerate the car. I just replaced the fan clutch too, same exact problem as the old. I'm not running the ac nor is it really hot out. Any ideas?

Fan clutch even driven 100% solid should not slow engine down that much. I've converted them to solid direct drive before with clutch gone and no problems. They just make more noise running all the time.
