Did you check the coolant level in radiator?
Is the Malfunction Indicator Light showing?
Check for disconnected vacuum hoses.

What caused the fan belt to fail?
When does the overheating occur?
Does the clutch fan turn freely when spun by hand on cold engine?
Check the thermostat.
Check water pump and ensure coolant is circulating.
