Cooling fans not coming on

There is a coolant temperature sensor in the side tank to the radiator. It has probably corroded enough that it no longer functions. You will need to unscrew it from the side tank of the radiator and replace the sensor. This is an easy repair and the part is relatively inexpensive.

My 2001 mercury sable runs hot (temperature gauge goes high then drops back at half also

Check your coolant level visually by removing the radiator cap (only when it is cold). Also make sure the coolant temperature sensor for the cooling fan is functioning properly. These are set to operate the fan when the engine coolant reaches a predetermined temperature. These go bad in time and need replacing. Sounds as though yours may be working intermittently.
