Question about 1994 Ford Escort
It is common for the fan to run momentarily when motor is started. After that the fan should only come on when the engine reaches a certain temperature. If the fans are not running when the engine is overheating, then it is usually the fan relay switch. Your local auto parts store should help you to locate the relay switch, and they are only a few dollars to replace. And can easily be done in 5 minutes or less.
To test the relay first, with the key in the on position, use an electrical tester to find the "hot" wire going to the relay and using a small piece of wire, connect that "hot" wire to one of the other connectors on the relay. If the fan comes on when you do this, you know that the relay switch is indeed defective.
