What engine ?
Some engines run at 95.

Get on a good diagnostic and read all temp sensors.
Usually 2.
One 1 In radiator and one on thermostat. If the system is thinking something is out of true values it puts on fans by default to protect the engine.
Not all codes flag a fault either.

Usually a bleed screw somewhere near thermostat if not on it.
If flowing back to tank it’s not a blockage.
