oil leak and fan problems

so im wondering are your fans suppose to turn on when you turn your car on or is that just when you use your air conditioner also im having a oil leak on my intake manifold just in the grooves below my valve cover and im thinking that its my gasket on my valve cover is all i can think anyone got any suggestions what i should check or do.

Re: oil leak and fan problems

The cooling fan is only needed when engine temperature rises above a predetermined level -- or when there is an increased load placed on the cooling system (as when running your air conditioner). As for the oil problem I'm not sure whats causing that.
