theres an easier way to fix a blown gasket, its called seal-up you pour it in your radiator and it chemically welds it back together look it up on google most auto shops sell it or something similar, but replaceing the gasket is the best way

Before accepting any advice on the torque specifications for the bolts, you should refer to the Haynes manual that specifically relates to your vehicle. The reason reason why knowing the torque specs. for these various bolts is not good enough is that each bolt will need to be tightened in a certain order/sequence. The Haynes manual provide you this information and a lot more! These manuals will run you about $10-$15 and they can be purchased at most auto parts stores (i.e. Auto Zone, Pep Boys, etc.). Good Luck!
Please remember to rate this solution. Thanks!

If the water pump and thermostat have been replaced and the system has been properly refilled and bled , the only thing left is the radiator. If coolant is not flowing through it properly , vehicle will run hot. If your car has overheated to the point of boiling over , your new thermostat may now be damaged again.. As for the fans , they only come on when the coolant reaches a certain temprature. Under normal driving conditions , they would not need to come on while the vehicle is moving , as the air flow from driving down the road would be enough to cool the engine.
