If the radiator is clogged the fan clutch will not lock up as the heat doesn't pass through the radiator right. The clutch has a bi-metallic spring in it that "locks" it up. However they wear out just like everything else. Quick check for the radiator, get the engine hot, shut it off and feel across the center (the core) and check for even heating, if you find a cold spot, it's plugged.
