Try changing out the thermostat. Sounds like the thermostat is stuck.

The fan should not be making all that racket. Take a look and you may see why it is also not cooling the radiator, allowing engine to overheat. I also saw that the 4.7 has a water pump with plastic, not metal, blades. Over time, they crumble and disintegrate until they're gone. Just be careful not to overheat this engine which has aluminum heads. Aluminum warps and cracks easily. Hope this helps.

Yes Hornet is correct. The problem sounds like it is in the fans if there vibrating, and can cause overheating at an idle.
