[DML] While we're talking about cooling problems...heres mine!

I just replaced all my cooling hoses and bled the system for about an
hour it seemed. Also my water pump was installed months ago and has
run fine since installation. Yesterday I drove the car and there were
no cooling problem at all even with sitting in traffic for a long
while, I even tested the fans by letting the car idle until it got
hot-fans kicked on and cooled it down. Today on my way to work I
noticed my coolant gauge flicker down to about 100, and then back to
the current temperature (mine's always run 160~170). Then on my way
home on the highway at 70+MPH the car suddenly overheated, luckily I
was near home so I made it without being on 250 more then a minute or
2. I made sure I had no coolant leaks, and bled the system even more.
I opened up the CAP ON THE RADIATOR (not coolant tank) to make sure
the radiator wasn't full of air. Sure enough there was no air, and I'm
pretty sure I got all the air out of the system. When the car was
overheating, the gauge would flick to 200 quickly, or maybe 160, and
then right back to 220, 240 and on...and the cooling fans wouldn't run
without the A/C forcing them on. Any ideas with this problem??
Secondly when examining the cooling fans, the passenger side will not
turn on. So I jumped the fan, and it does work; measured the voltage
in the green wire before the connection and it was 0. This prompted me
to check the wire that replaces the relay and the ground for the
fan-no problems....I've never had these problems until today. Any
suggestions on what to look at in order to fix this? Thanks guys
