Are you wanting to diagnose and repair this yourself?Based on the fan not working that looks to be the cause so far. Other possible issues are:thermostat stuckradiator cloggedroad debris blocking the condenser and radiator finsfaulty head gasket. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen at the top you should see a rating 1-5 stars and a green submit button.
