Probably old or defective ignition wiring. Replace spark plug and distributor wires.

Will a car start if the radiator fan doesnt work?

The car will start. If it is malfunctioning, then the car will overheat. If the car overheats, it may not start again for awhile as a safety feature, or it may not start because of heat damage. On newer cars if the car is cold, then the electric fan will turn off. It only turns on when the antifreeze needs cooling. On older belt-driven fans, the fan runs all the time.

Car won't start when cold?

Turn the key to the ON position, pump the gas pedal 4 times, start the car. If it doesnt start: Turn the key to the OFF position, turn to the ON position and wait until the warning lights go off, turn to the OFF position, turn to the ON position and wait until the warning lights go off, turn to the OFF position, turn to the ON position and pump the gas pedal 5 times, start the car. If this doesnt work, then try again. Remember! Do not crank for more than 15 seconds at one time, it will damage the starter. (Note: the key turning on and off are to prime the engine to start and should be done to get this to work.) If it doesnt start, you might want to get your car serviced.
