If this is the PC CPU cooling fan, it sounds like a temp sensor fault (or faulty fan)
Or if this is really the Car radiator overheating, perhaps this is posted in the wrong section?

My computer pc boots and goes off after a while

Sounds like it might be overheating or a virus is kicking you off. If it is overheating, then if you try to immediately try to power it back up, it will not come back successfully. If you let it sit a while and cool off then power it up and it boots successfully then you know it's overheating.

Causes of overheating:
1). Dust - dust in the fans, the vents, around the heatsink and cpu, all inside the computer.
2) A Fan that does not work.
3) The Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heatsink has either dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool.

Good thing it's a desktop, cuz all you have to do is remove the power cord, the case and you can remedy the problem easily.

Overheating although cooling fan & heatsink are ok

u r saying that the laptop is overheating. I think it is from cpu overheating right. just to make sure that it is cpu overheating, just go to the following link and download the software around 1mb which displays each and every component heating levels.
from that you can find out the exact component.

if cpu is heating then just replace the thermal interface material and the problem will be gone.
if the cpu thermal interface material is too old then this type of problems arises

Acer Aspire L100 overheating

You could try a new cpu fan and heatsink. They are normally inexpensive. if this does not work make sure all the case fans are working and check to see if your ram is overheating

The overheating fan is not controlled by a software, there are three reasons why your fan overheats. First in the hard drive, your fan is not connected properly. Second you need thermal paste to keep the metal part of the fan to stick to the CPU to cool it down. The last thing is that the fan could be dusty and not running as usual.

If you?re not sure if your computer is overheating and you don?t want to check manually, you can use one of the monitoring softwares that check that for you. (for example- ASUS PROBE 2 which came with my motherboard).
