Yes, you will have to change the fan, get a bigger one and go flush the radiator

My 1996 Nissan bluebird had all the cool system replaced but is still boils the temp says its cold i need help to find out why it boils over

Looks like you have a leaking head gasket or cracked head. You can buy a head gasket leak detector kit that will let you know if there is CO2 gas escaping through the radiator. I think that it is this gas leak that makes it look like your radiator is boiling.

2000 Nissan Frontier overheats frequently. fan clutch and thermostat have been replaced, radiator has been flushed, water pump was changed last year????Help

Well you covered the major points of the system.
It is possible one of the hoses is collapsing internally, or a blockage inside the radiator in spite of it being flushed.
I would try to see if the radiator and the block will flow with the hoses off.
Another possible cause is something blocking the air flow thru the radiator.
Was it running hot before the pump was replaced ? Any chance the pump is defective ?

I have a 2001 alero and it is overheating, I have replaced the thermostat, water pump, heads, head gaskets, fan motors, relay switch to the fans and it acts like it wants to run hot. When I "test...

The most probable cause of both problems is with the replacement heads. As far as knocking goes, hard to diagnose from here - usual causes are a noisy hydraulic lifter (which, if severe, should be replaced) or a failing piston bearing or incorrect head/head gasket (piston banging on head which is very serious). Also, if the head gaskets were incorrectly installed or the wrong heads were used, you could have blocked some of the cooling water ports.

Overheating can also be caused by a blocked radiator - the system circulates the cooling water into the bottom of the radiator and the water cools as it circulated up to the top and back to the engine. A quick way to check when overheating is to CAREFULLY see if there is a hot-to-cooler temperature gradient in the radiator from bottom to top.

I have a 1989 Pontiac Bonneville that is running hot after water pump replacement. I found out that after replacement I should have driven it to seal the gasket. Was that too damaging or could it be...

First off you never have to drive to seal any gasket! If it did not run hot before the replacement of the pump it should not run hot now unless something is defective or improperly installed.Presure test the system for leaks first and repair any leaks before doing anything else.Be sure to make sure that the Head Gaskets are not leaking as well!

1996 nissan altima running hot changed thermostat new radiator you can drive it an hour before it runs hot

check the operation of the fans, since the radiator was recently replaced, it is posible they may not be plugged in correctly or operating like they should, if they look good, look into the water pump, with the work that u already did the only this left to look at after the water pump is the intake or head gasket, any water in oil or vice versa? look into that if all else fails....

Where is the thermostat located in a 2000 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab pick up? Is it at upper radiator hose at the engine end?

You are correct the upper radiator hose leads to the thermstat housing. The thermostat housing should be retained by only 2 bolts.

2001 Dodge Durango 4.7 automatic . put in new radiator new thermostat hoses and cap , water pump is good as well , still runs hot water keeps flowing out of where the cap goes . No water in oil and no oil...

sadly it sounds like you have a blown head gasket...Does the coolant  smell like exhaust?  I hope you don't but, everything points in that direction.  Try bleeding the coolant system.
