Fans only come on at very slow speeds or while stoped, otherwise the air flow is enough to cool the water. so the big question is, are you loosing water? if so from where? id check the following. either A get under the car or B reach down on the driver side (the side of the engine with your timing belt) down to where the water pump is and feel the over flow valve, if water is coming from their its your water pump(this is bad very expensive repair, you have to replace a LOT of stuff). also their should be a metal pipe that goes into your water pump/tempature sensor check the o rings to see if they are leaking(or as in my case i had a pin hole in the pipe itself). Check the fins on your radiator to see if they are damaged.
also if its the head gasket this is an easy thing to check. pull your oil dipstick if the oil is watery this is your issue(and also expensive)

ok, its time for a radiator flush. there is major sludge in the internals of this radiator. Make sure the thermostat is in the correct position as well. I've seen many cars come into my shop with the thermostat inserted backwards.

sounds like you have done a lot with this there is a few things that you can do to ensue every thing is running right.
first if you can get a handheld thermal gun and check the temperature at the temp sensor on the radiator or block then see what it reads compared to the guage to ensure the guage is correct.
next check the temperature at both the top and the bottom of the radiatoer if there is a big difference in temps the radiator is partially blocked a radiator will increase 30 to 100 degrees if the radiator is 20 percent blocked.. also check to ensure that the radiator hoses are not collapsing.
Now ensure that you are not gettin air in the system by way of the water pump gasket or by loose hoses ok?
and finaly check to ensure that the heater core is not leaking and drawing air into the system or is clogged this will make a vehical give the overheating symptom also ok?
Let me know how this is going
Best regards mikle
