I was reffering to the plastic fan in your water pump. Depending on what year your car is (I can't remember the cutoff date for the plastic fan) you will either have a plastic or metal fan in your water pump. The plastic fan blade will break thereby causing your car to over heat. Also pieces of plastic might make their way through to other parts if left alone. However, I think it is most likely a broken thermostat. It is the first thing any mechanic replaces when a car comes in over heating. I think pelican parts might have a DIY for replacing the thermostat. Also chances are, that the plastic propellor if your car had one, has already broken and been repalced hopefully with a metal one.
For the cleaner, I am not sure what brands you have on your side of the big puddle, but 44k is a great fuel injector/fuel system cleaner. It comes in a can and you just pour it in. They have another that you direct inject into you r fuel injectors, you don't want that one. If the cleaner doesn't work, then you would want to start looking at your fuel filter and pump.
