you need to find out if its the fans are bad or is the coolant temp censor bad or thermostat or if there is air in systemAnswerone fan is intermittent and only comes on when the engine reaches ideal temperature. the other only comes on when you turn on the AC. check fuses.
I had the same problem with my 1997 Mitsubishi ecplise. The shop tried to tell me that it is going to be alot of money to replace the temp sensor that is inside the head. We fixed it another way by wireing a switch to the sensor and we can turn the fans on when we need to, but it is just best to just keep them on when ever you turn your car on.
Find where the fluid is coming out and repair/replace it.
Bad thermostat, fans not working or coming on when they are supposed to, bad waterpump, bad radiator or radiator cap.
Thermostat is stuck.. Is the cooling fans coming on at 232 degrees? Is the radiator sludged up?
With the radiator full and the recovery tank 1/2 filled you will need to start the engine and when the temperature reaches 232 to 235 degrees the cooling fans should come on. If not then take it to a repair shop and have then diagnosis the problem.
If it has electric fans, make sure they are coming on when it get's hot. If not, then check the fuses and relays for them and power to the fans. Might just be a relay for the fans.

Some typical radiator repair jobs are leaking hoses, leaking radiators or loose connections.
according the repair manual the thermostat is located on the bottom of the waterpump. You can access it underneath the front of the car. follow the radiator hose coming off the bottom of the radiator.
You stop driving it and repair the problem that is causing it to run hot. A complete cooling system service is in order. Drain the coolant, replace the thermostat, replace the coolant, check the function of the water pump, the thermal switch for the cooling fans and the cooling fans themselves. Clean the exterior of the radiator and flush the radiator.
take the vehicle to a reputible radiator repair shop and they should be able to flush the whole system out for you.
radiator is in front off the cooling fans ,in the front of engine.
likely possibilities are the following. Low or bad coolant , water pump, thermostat needs changing, clogged radiator or lines, coolant temperature sensor or radiator fans not coming on, head gasket Also check the radiator caps on the hose and the overflow container. That was my problem. One or both may have to be replaced.
