Park your car and turn the defrost on, your fan should kick on automatically. Have you taken into account the possibilities for air bubbles?

yeah, check the wiring on the fan, and the fuse (not sure if there is one or where it is as i've never had to check it). could just be a loose wire, or your fans shot. DO MAKE SURE YOU GET THAT FAN RUNNING BEFORE YOU DO ANYMORE DRIVING. we had a guy in houston here blow his headgaskets cause his fan quit and he didnt know it.

You can rule out the fan motor by taking a volt-meter or a test light between the wiring harness and a ground point. If you get voltage when the fan should be on, the fan's shot. If you get no voltage, it's a wiring/fuse issue

You might have an air bubble in the cooling system after you refilled it.

Clicky, clicky!

i'm guessing the fan motor he's talking about isn't pushing the air into your car. it's the fan connected behind your radiator. it's hooked up inside a housing which you have to remove for replacement ($100). Chances are the cold air from normal driving is cooling the engine oil temperature just enough. idle or slow moving traffic might cause more of a problem.

XR71ST, his fan behind the radiator is working, he said he checked it in an earlier post. Sorry to take so long to reply Dee, but what I meant is that air rises, so when you get your cooling system x full, there's going to be air bubbles in places, which won't get pushed out until the car is running. If/when they get pushed out slowly on their own, there's more room for more coolant to go in

just leave your rad cap off, turn the car on, and the bubbles should come right out. You might have a little bit of a mess too. if it gets low by doing this, just fill it
