Default My Honda heats up when?

A few weeks ago my 1996 Honda accord when I would turn it off the fan would stay on and I don't remember that happening before. Now when I stop it heats up of I rev it cools and when driving it cools. What can be the problem? Thanks in advance to all that help.

New temperature thermostat. It is getting "stuck" hence tricking your fan when to come off and on. It is around 10 dollars to replace and you can do yourself in under half an hour, just look on youtube and follow along. Very simple.

Yes, similar situation happened to my 00 Honda Civic. It was the thermostat, mine was located at the end of the bottom hose to the engine block with an electrical plug to it. Change it with cool engine and dont be afraid if some coolant falls out. Check coolant after.
