I just did my cooling system over the weekend, and left the plastic bottom pannel off. After I drive for about 5 minutes it sounds like something is rubbing or vibrating from the bottom of the car. Is that just road noise or is it causing something by having that off? Any suggestions on what to look for?

Problem is still there after I finally got to get the bottom protector on. Friend thought that maybe the fan was installed incorrectly?

Could be, that would explain why it doesn't start until after the car has warmed up. Does the noise coincide with the car being at full operating temperature?
