The radiator fan is working fine but the temperature sensor i dont know its locationmy car start overheating sometimes i need help.


The best way to get the exact location for the Temp sensor would be the Haynes Repair manual. As far as your overheating issue goes I would replace the Thermostat and see if that resolves the issue. Make sure the radiator has the correct amount of antifreeze in it.

Don't know if the hot engine fan is working


The fan is known as a traffic fan because it usually goes on in heavy traffic. However, it should go on whenever it gets sufficiently hot.
If you have a temperature gauge on your car the needle shouldn't go more than 1/2 way up, or the temperature gauge if digital should not go above 220 or 230 deg. F (in GM cars) during even hot day operation.

If it goes to 260 deg. F or above, you have a problem.

If the fan does not go on with the a/c then you may have a relay or electrical wiring break that prevents it from going on when needed.
