this is not necessarily the end of your engine, no

 

as long as the engine was not severely overheated or mechanically damaged, you can probably get away with replacing the pump, thermostat and fan and any other parts that may have been damaged

Hey Steve So if the fan blow clean off doesn't really mean that the engine is damaged ?

no, it does not mean the engine is necessarily damaged to the point of not being worth fixing. fans are just weak plastic and do break
