My car has been running hot. I bought a cooling sensor but when it is plugged up the fans won't work but when you unplug it the fans come on.

Do you
have the same problem?

With the sensor out of the system, the fans will turn on, do you mean that the fans will not come on with the engine at high temp? Have you changed the thermostat as yet?

No they dont come on which is causing it to run hot and I have bought a thermostat, radiator cap, we took the radiator out and it looks fine. I went out to crank it this morning and at first it wouldnt crank and the it crank and cut back off, and about 5 mins later I went to crank it and it crank right up.
