Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds to me like your car needs a new thermostat. which is only about a 15 dollar item. thermostats open and close controlling the flow of the cooled coolant into your engine. sometimes the thermostats get stuck oppen or closed allowing your car to overheat. good luck

SOURCE: Very hot car.
I'd test the fan by connecting it directly to the battery to verity it is functioning. If it is, check the relays that control the fans they should be located in the fuse box in the engine bay. If the relays are ok the only other thing that could be causing the problem is the temp sensor on the radiator.

Had the same problem with a Neon same age as yours. Mine started after driving through a large snow storm that packed snow under the hood. Turned out there is a relay or sensor for the fan that had to be replaced. Once this was done the problem was fixed.

you need to look under the hood and to make sure someone did not wire the fan direct to your ingnition switch because they did not wanted to replace the fan because the relay was bad in the fan.

I have had to mess with my thermostat housing a lot because of the poor design of the thermostat housing that causes a leak... don't worry about it. keep the system sealed (caps on) and it will eventually purge itself... the coolant reservoir being at the highest point means that all air will work its way to it eventually. it will not harm your motor.
