I read a solution for non-working fans for this van. Was the owner talking about engine fans or A/C fans? I have a van that the A/C fans only run every once in a while. With winter coming up, that's going to be a problem, as I have young kids. Sometimes I can hit the console and it will kick on. The a/c works, I can feel cold air, but the fan is messed up. Any ideas?

The timing belt is inside the housing (plastic) and if it was off then the engine would not have been running. The belt you saw is the serpentine belt and drives the accessories such as alternator --fan---power steering---water pump---ac compressor. With it missing the engine would have no water pump or fan and would have been getting quite hot. Get a new belt and if you have a owners hand book the lay out will be in a diagram.
if the water in your radiator or reservoir is boiling means your cars engine auxilliary cooling fan is not perfectly working enough to dissipate heat inside the radiator( heat exchanger) check cooling fan if its silicone oil filled if its rotating free and no resistance then remove fan and refill silicone oil/ if its equiped with electric fan then fan motor is busted
The van has several issues... I may not cover all of them here:
1. The rpm tac wire is not seated properly at the tranny.
2. The "ground" is not making a good connection; maybe the ground strap was removed and not replaced. Purchase a "ground strap" ($12) at an auto parts store (AutoZone?) and connect it from the engine to a convenient location on the chassis .
I don't thing there is a short there is radiator fan switch that control these fan, it works off of heat. There is also a fan relay that control look in fuse box inside the hood for fan relay and make sure its NOT stuck , if it isn't then its the fan switch.This switch may be bad and cause the fan to turn on. Replace radiator fan switch located on water outlet on engine and this should solve your problem. A
