Sound like you have a bad fan relay and its sticking on. The relay is under the hood in a fuse box. It should be labled fan relay somewhere in the fuse box. They are ushally about $20 at the dealer.

My car is off but I hear a fan noise-type coming from the hood. Is that normal?

It is the electric fan for the radiator. It may stay on for a while for the car to cool down. I have never liked cars that do this. Once they kick off they probably will not kick back on, but for this type electric fan set up I would never put my hands near the fan without the battery completely disconnected.
You also might have the engine off and the ignition on, make sure the key is actually in the "Off" position and remove the key. A worn key cylinder may let you remove the key even though it is not actually in the "Off" position. So be careful and sure of what is actually happening.
Good luck and keep all your fingers.

I have a problem whit my jeep cherokee sport 1996 when it is running the temperature star to rise and in the middle of the range stop it. I have to wait until the temperature coming down and then star...

It is normal for the A/C air to warm up a little when stopped. Less airflow thru the condensor. It is normal for the engine temperature gage to rise up to about the 80% mark on its scale before the cooling fan kicks on. The gage will also show about the same reading on the first start of the day, until the thermostat opens.

Physically look in the radiator under the cap when cool, for coolant level, and check the valve in the cap for sticking. If air is present in the radiator it can't get out, and more coolant can't get in,(from the overflow). Either clean the cap or replace it and check that it is the CORRECT cap.
Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, try backflushing it, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.
Fan shroud broken or missing....
Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Belt driven fan, belt slipping, fan clutch is bad, fan blades have flattened out.

Air dam under front bumper is gone, loose, or broken. It actually has a purpose other than scraping on the driveway or curbs. It forces air up into and thru the condenser and radiator. If it's loose, airflow can actually push it out of place making it useless or blocking the airflow. Along with that, there may also be a plastic piece attached to the bottom of, and wraps up behind the bumper. If it's loose, airflow can actually push it out of place blocking the airflow. Simply reattach it with 4 or 5 screws.

Also, if the vehicle has A/C and electric fans, one fan is dedicated to the A/C and should come on almost the instant the A/C is turned on. The engine fan will run even with the key off, that is normal. The system is trying to cool itself. Hope this helps.

99 Ford Expedition, seems to be overheating and shuts off on me. Check engine light on. What could it be

Well, not knowing anything other than what you have posted....the first thing I would do is check the fluid level. If you have done that and it is okay then the thermostat could be the next step. Next would be the water pump.....

While checking things out, have your Expedition sit there in the driveway with the engine running at idle (in park) and with the hood open, see if your fan kicks on....if it doesn't after your engine heats up to operating temperature (about 5-8 minutes running at idle) check the fuse.

This should get you started in the right direction....checking the fan/fuse/fluid is free and can be done immediately!

My 2004 dodge durango runs hot when sitting in traffic but when I start moving again it goes back to normal and it also seems to lack coolant even after filling it up

First thing I would check is the cooling fan. While running in your driveway allow the car to warm sufficently. The fan should kick on. If it isnt running check the fuse located on the driver side kick panel first. There is also a relay under the hood inside a black box on the right hand hand if facing the engine.

As far as the coolant goes. make sure the thermostat is open when you fill with coolant. If it isnt you only fill the reservoir and then when the thermostat opens it draws down water through the engine making it low again. Same deal, just allow the car to warm up with the radiator cap off. You should see the water swirling if the thermostat is open. SHoudl open around 180 to 190 dpending on which yo9u have installed. Be very careful not to open the cap under pressure. Safe thing to do is squueze the top radiator hot to see if its rigid or soft. If it rigid (tight) dont dare open the radiator cap. If you can aqueeze it easily go and and half turn the cap to allow the pressure to vent just to be safe then remove it al the way. Be caeful because sometimes water will sure out. Be sure to replace the cap prior to shutting the engine off or else if will surge water out whn the engine stops. Good luck and be safe.
