    It's hard to know the thinking of your mechanic without asking them. Ask for the them to explain the diagnostic procedure that led them to replace the fan then the thermostat. Ask for the diagnostic information that was stored in the computer that made the light come on. Post as much of that info and we may be able to give you some more info.
