Just because you stopped it with your fingers does not mean its bad. It just means it was not engaged at that time. Machanical fan engages and disengages below 2000 rpm. most common problem with the machanical fan is they engage and wont disengage. Then when you rev to 4-5k rpm its still engaged and they come apart causing catastrophic damage to the hood and all surrounding componants. Your damn lucky you still have 5 fingers. Sounds to mean like you need to take your car to someone who knows what there doing.
