1993 Nissan Altima GLE Runnig Hot

Hi i have a 1993 nissan altima gle and it seems to be running hot. it started about a week ago (11/22/08) (current date 11/30/08) running hot no to long after i put some coolant in it but before i put the coolant in it, it was running just fine. my thermostat does not go pass normal temperature but it does move to the middle faster than it use to. when i touch my radiator hose it was all hard and hot unlike how it usually be fairly soft. my fans will not turn on unless i turn on my air condition. the smoke rises lightly but it is still noticable and it comes up from the right side of the hood (passenger side). i have had the car for 9 months and before i had got the car it had a problem with the thermostat but that was fixed then afterwards i bought the car. i gave as much details as i can think of so can anyone help me with my problem please??

HI, It sounds like to me that you need to replace your thremal fan switch, this controls the radiator fans to go on and off as needed and keep temperature at normal.
