Is the coolant properly mixed?

Is the thermostat stuck?

Is the thermostat in backwards?

You mentioned adding electric fans.... did you remove your mecahnical fan or the fan shroud?

id say your thermostat would be the problem, you should replece your whole setup just so you have your car hella reliable and sanitary, all the hoses thermostat and housing and mabey even a new waterpump and you engine will be happy
