leaking water when we drive it even going
very short distances . Also the small fan

The fan is a must to work. Also did he purge the cooling system from the air pockets? And there is no sense driving this when it is leaking. Hopefully you have not damaged the head gasket. But the water pump can be another issue, may be bad, could be where the leak is.
