i needed to add a little coolant, because my car seems to be overheating. So i added dex cool. Not sure if that will be good for my engine. Also i only have one fan working, any idea on how to fix a fan

Did you mix the coolant 50/50?

Only one fan working wont hurt anything, UNTIL your running the a/c..then its not to good when your at a stand still. The second fan is for the a/c on most models.

dex cool (ext. life, orange) is ok to mix with regular (green) coolant, however it's not something i'd continue to do. mixing the two types only makes the coolant a nasty color (orange and green don't make a pretty color) and make it harder to trace leaks, determine how clean it is, etc. And dexcool (ext. life) costs more.

nate's right... mix 50/50 too.. but try to use what you have in there (green with green, orange with orange)

If the problem keeps up, my suggestion is that you might wanna check the thermo-stat.
