first look on the bottom of the oil fill cap and tell me what you see , what does the exhaust look like ? Do that first . check coolant level and start the car see if the fans come on when it gets hot , if those are working then change the thermostat and flush the system , if they don't come on and you did the first things then see if power is getting to the fans , if not check fan relays and coolant sensor , If you do the diagnostics and use common sense you won't spend money on parts needlessly

then see if the fans come on when it gets hot , sit in the driveway or pull over on the road , don't run it hot you might ruin the motor , if they don't come on you have to see if they're getting power , if you find the relays you can swap one for the other if they are identical and see if that helps . a multi tester would help , the fan blades can get razor sharp so be careful feeling around down there ,
