it won't overheat too easily/quickly since the fan functions at high and low speed. so your resistor is busted and low speed doesn't work but when it gets really hot the high speed kicks on, no overheating. works for now but certainly not the way the cooling system was designed to run.

they sell the rad assemblies on ebay for <$200 but the labor is where you'll still get hit since it sounds like you don't want to do the wrenching yourself. it's a full front tear down to get to it.

i'm surprised they didn't say anything about the thermostat housing gasket, those tend to blow out and leak
