Engine cooling fan will not turn on when temp reaches normal temp. They will
only run if I spin the fan blade to make it run.

If you have to spin the blades to get them running that means that the motors are very weak and need replaced, and you better replace the fan relays also, that kind of load can burn the internal points and cause problems a little bit later on with the fans not running at all.
