I had a similar problem last year.  Finally got around to looking this year (don't ask; it just never overheated, and it cooled well.)  I found that the fuse for the fan had busted who knows how long ago.  My electric fan hasn't been running for at least a year.  Boy, do I feel dumb!  In fact, it probably hasn't been running since I bought it.  Anyway, we replaced it with a fusible link.  Works great now!  You can find the fuse block near the power steering fluid reservoir.
Oh, and on the thermostat, don't order one from Advance Auto parts.  The part isn't exactly the same.

guys first.  One, the drivers side electric fan on the radiator wasn't
running, is this a secondary fan?
