What year is this?

Check your engine temp sensor, that's what controls your fan.

Check the thermostat...it can get stuck open or closed or even just wear out.

Its a ~$20 piece and easy to replace.

Does the fan wobble when the car is cold ? Can't remember if the fan is supposed to be able to rotate with the car off. I replaced my fan because it was wobbling and didn't want to face the fact of the fan assembly coming off when I was driving. How many miles are on the car? Mine had about 190k when I did this.
