I have done everything possible to repair the overheating, my question is everything has been checked and my car still runs hot on the gauge in the car, could the fan and fan motor not working to its full potential make a difference?
Do you
have the same problem?

If the fan is coming on-Get it block and pressure tested this will tell you something

I was told that the fan comes on but its running very low or weak! My car is not running hot to the touch its only on the gauge in the car! I noticed somewhere else in the forum something about the cooling system relay fuses, could I change those also?

If its the relay I don't think it'll run at all. Could be the temperature gauge itself. Check the coolant temperature sensor or the temperature gauge/switch

Disregard the engine temperature gauge switch and check the CTS resistances located at front of cylinder head.

Would changing the radiator fan relay fuse high and low speed help? What I guess im asking is do you think that by those fuses being bad could make the car run hot or should I say make the water boil so fast, honestly to think about it im not sure the fan is kicking on or if it is its running really weak.

Have you checked the thermostat
