Default I have an acura 1999 tl after driving the car for a while i turn the car off and the fan remains...

...on for 5 min? Sometimes over 5 min. Also noticed that after driving for long periods the temp guage goes above half over 3/4 of the way up. I know thats not normal.

Recently another problem surfaced, also after driving for long periods of time when I shut the car off and I turn it back on it stalls right away, only on the third or fourth time does it barely start even then I have to press the gass and highten the rpms and then it runs normal. Also the engine light is on and after driving for a while the tcs light goes on, i'm not sure what that has to do with it. I really want to fix these problems since i cant afford a new car right now and I really would appreciate anyone out there that could help me out with some answers....

its normal that the fan stays on after the car is off. its just trying to cool the car down. im assuming the thermostat is out, so you might want to replace that and flush out the coolant with new 50/50 mix coolant.

since check engine light is on, go down to autozone and they will let you borrow an obd2 scanner. that will let you know what you need to fix. autozone might want a $200 deposit to use it, but after you return it, you get the money back and now you will know whats wrong.

the tcs, i have no idea but it doesn't hurt to ask the autozone guy.

good luck. remember to take your battery(positive and negative) off for about 5 mins to reset the ecu so you would get rid of the old codes.
