Maybe is the radiator that need to be cleaned, because something similar happened to my toyota tercel, when I got it cleaned, the problem dissapeared, but you also have to check if the fan is working.

Sounds like you have coolant leak if you are loosing coolant or a bad thermostat. I would replace the thermostat, they run about $10. The other fan is an aux fan and will only run when the a/c unit is on.

It will probably be your thermostat that is jammed open , try fitting a new one , the thermostat is located in the housing on the side of the engine usually just above the gearbox , trace the top radiator hose to the engine and you should be able to find where the thermostat is ,
