Fan Clutch? If you were on the freeway you wouldnt need the fan running but if your car is sitting idling it would overheat. To test that start your car then after it gets up to temperature take a water bottle and see if you can stop the fan moving if so theres your problem
If first you don't succeed you must try again, and then again
