Is radiator cooling fan working? When does it overheat?

I think the radiator cooler works perfect, n there was a hose that busted n started leakin out radiator fluid but I fixed and everything but the car keeps showing engine overheating n shuts down. I'm confused

Maybe there's air in system? Did it overheat when hose leaked?

You need to run a pressure test and if there is no leaks bleed the cooling system

Supposed to self bleed thru small hose ontop of bottle. Check to see it's not plugged. Some people perform bleeds by raising front of car so bottle is highest point on motor compartment then run until hot and let cool down cold. Done. Check level of coolant in bottle and drive.
