Yup!! It is either the front cooling fan motor, or a broken mounting bracket. To repair it, the whole front end will most likely need to come apart. A second cheaper option is to install a pusher fan in front of the radiator and wire it in place of the stock fan. I did this a few years ago and it was much easier. The front clip needs to come off, but we are talking about maybe a dozen screws and it lifts off in one piece.
