SOURCE: running hot
Sounds like Clutch in your fan
The coolant level is right on, no hoses are leaking and the accessory belt is intact. You start the engine, let it idle and make a visual inspection. There's no sign of belt slippage.
If your car is like most, the cooling fan is mounted to its drive pulley via a clutch. Clutch fans operate at different speeds under different conditions to help reduce drain on the engine and to save fuel. When the engine is hot, the clutch fan runs nearly as fast as the engine. When the engine is cold, the fan runs much more slowly.
The fan clutch operation is regulated by a valve that is opened and closed by a thermostatic spring. The valve controls the flow of a viscous silicone fluid between chambers in the clutch assembly. When the engine is cold, the clutch is essentially disengaged, which is why the fan runs at its slowest compared to the engine's speed. As the engine warms up, the air flowing to the fan assembly becomes hotter. The hotter air causes the thermostatic spring to unwind and open the valve. Silicone fluid from the reservoir chamber flows into the main chamber, engaging the clutch, and the fan spins faster (though it's still slightly slower than the engine.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: radiator fans won't come on
Hey I had the same problem with my 95 olds cutlass supreme. First i checked that the fans were receiving power by testing the voltage. Then I noticed that they were recieving voltage just not coming on. When the engine temp got pretty high, they finally came on, another words the gauge could be broken or the engine just does not tell the fans to come on until it has reached a high temp. So i started the vechicle, left it in park and gave it gas until the temp guage read very high, it reached like 230 to 250 then the fans came on. Try getting the temp up there and then see if the fans come on an dlet me know at firstname.lastname@example.org

the engine coolant temp sensor is in the assembly that the pressure cap (radiator cap) goes on. it's under the part that the cap goes on, closer to the engine block. you can see the wires and the plug going to it. here's the remove and replace step by step:
1. disconnect battery negative terminal (they always tell you to do that when you work on electrical parts)
2.partially drain cooling system below level of ect sensor
3.disconnect ect sensor
4.remove ect sensor
and to reinstall
1.install ect sensor torque to 168 in-lbs
2.connect sensor electrical connector
3.connect battery negative terminal
4.refill system with coolant
hope that helps
