fans not starting

Does it start bubbling even when you first start it? If so you most likely have a blown headgasket and the combustion gasses are accumulating around the fans sensor switch so it is not getting a good read on the cooling system temperature so it is not turning on the fans or the fan system is inoperative and that has caused the headgasket to blow. A block check test will confirm or deny this.
