I hate to say it, but chances are you have a blown head gasket; even without ANY cooling fan, the car will NOT overheat when moving! Very slight chances you might just have air in the system after you lost coolant the first time. Get a new fan clutch, add water (no need to even waste coolant at this point) and bleed the system.

Unlike the newer all aluminum motors, the M52 can take a lot of abuse. In the worst case you will need a head (if cracked) and gasket.
