If its repeated it already needs a head gasket, but check the thermostat you can test it in hot water. Make sure the water pump is working. I have to say that the main thing I hear when this is happening is I already put new water pump, thermostat, Fan motor you get the idea and it good to know they are good but it really needs head gaskets these models gaskets are known to fail.

OK I had a guy look at it and he said the fan went out

You did the right thing. It's always better to have someone look at it in person. Lots of people online will tell you it "definitely" needs something when they can't possibly know.
