Check the temperature sensor on the engine as this is the primary sensor that initiates the fans coming on through the vehicle computer.Also check the relays,there are relays for the fans too.Good luck.

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 TRANSMISSION LEAKING WHILE RUNNING LEAKING AT TORQUE CONVERTER SHAFT SEAL OR TRANSMISSION COOLER LINES GOING INTO RADIATOR LEAKING.YOU WILL LOSE MORE FLUID AT COOLER LINE BECAUSE TRANSMISSION UNDER PRESSURE THE OIL PUMP PUMPING IT THROUGH THE RADIATOR YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR FLUID QUICKLY IF LEAK COMING FROM COOLER LINES GOING INTO RADIATOR.DONT DRIVE VAN UNTIL FIX BECAUSE FLUID LOST WILL BE TRANSMISSION LOST.
Check the transmission oil cooling radiator [and fan(s)] to check for proper cooling--blow out the radiator fins with compressed air. Check the color of the transmission fluid to make sure that is not being contaminated.
either your ac radiator fan is not working (Electric fan behind the radiator), or your AC is overcharged, if it works fine except at idle it's the fan, replace it,
often the motor itself is replaced and the rest of the fan is re-used
Check the fan, by turning on the ac when the engine hasn't warmed up yet, if the electric fan is NOT running either the relay or fan motor is bad, usualy the motor
