Check your freon level on your AC system. If unit is low, it can actually put out more heat in front of the radiator. Does it overheat when the AC is off?

have you checked your oil by pulling the dipstick? does it look deep brown?if so. there is water or coolant present in engine!!do not run the engine.if you see brown sludge on the oil dipstick,there is a blown head gasket.if you open your radiator and you see oil floating in there, suggest a blown head gasket.if you have oil or antifreeze coming out of exhaust,you have a blown head gasket in the motor.oil mixing with the water is never a good thing motor wise. suggest you not run the engine until you get a pro. to see,or you run risk of loosing engine.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com we are here always to assist the people that want to know for sure,

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to clean the radiator out and also flush the coolant system for 10-15 minutes. You won't get it all out, but it should still run and cool ok. Check your fuse for the fan. If it is good, you either have a bad wire to the fan or a bad fan. For the time being, you can splic the hot wire to the fan, add a wire and hook it to the battery. If the fan works then, you have a bad wire somewhere in that harness. If not, get a new fan. There are other things that can cause overheating besides a down fan. If the fan doesn't fiz the problem, check the thermostat and water pump. The thermostat sticking or going bad is the more common to go bad. It can also be caused by a bad impeller or bad head gasket or coolant cap.
