    The head gasket may be ok now, but if it keeps overheating you'll have issues.

    If the fan is not turning on, you may have a relay failure or the fan itself may be failing. Check wiring, check the connector.

    If the fan isn't turning on, why are the mechanics not addressing this?

    don't know why the mechanics are not addressing this, the place where I took my vehicle is a modest repair shop firestone.

    The reason they are not addressing this is because they are frankly not qualified.

    I strongly recommend you spend your money with a good independent shop or dealership with qualified technicians and equipment.
