Yes, there is. I reiterate: overhaul the cooling system. Replace the radiator, water pump, fan clutch, fan, thermostat housing, thermostat, radiator cap and all the hoses and belts. And don't drive the car with a blade broken off the fan. The next one that breaks off (and another one WILL break off since it's now way unbalance) it may severe a hose, or take out the radiator and strand you.

You're welcome! That link has a parts list for the cooling system overhaul.
