SOURCE: fans run constantly
Irwinr12 is right, no amount of fan will keep the Regal from warming up if the thermostat is working properly, Replace it. Clear SES light with OBDII tool & you should be good to go. BTY its the car computer that keeps the fans running, and they will continue to run until you clear the code. Any kind of cooling/overheating proiblem will kick in the SES light and set both fans running. I own '01 GS, my son has '03 GS and we have both complete set of service manuals. Trust me, do what I say. Batman

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Those little shocks are gas charged, thus pressure increases in hot, and decreases in cold. Over the years they tend to seep, or leak a bit, thus, only work good in warm/hot weather. They have replacement ones at autoparts stores, and shouldn't be too expensive.

SOURCE: stalls when warm 95 camry
I had a problem with my 1995 Camry also. I would run fine cold, warm up when you let off the gas or shifted gears it would die. Sometimes it would start back up and sometimes it would not. After Many repairs, full tune up ect. ect. it turns out that the Coolant Temperature Sensor was bad. A $15 part. When you are driving the engine stays cool but once you let off the gas, when this sensor is bad, it reads the engine as hot and stalls it to keep it from overheating.
