First ensure coolant is at proper level in radiator. If OK, inspect cooling fan relay (located in underhood fuse/relay center). Let me know results and I will follow up.

II don't know how to check the relay to see if its good or not? The electic fan does come on, and the temp stays normal as long as you have the air conditioner on. As soon as you turn off the ac the fan doesn't come on any more. So, now what? Any kind of help would be appreciated.
