My car seems to overheat sitting in the sun & when I turn it on ? If I don't put my foot on the gas it will turn off . I turn the a/c on & the outside temp will go down from 108- 90 area when I first start it , & cool down when I'm driving . But I'm worried I might blow something it could be several things , but if it means anything I just recently got someone to put in the alternator because the one before went out , can someone tell me what to check I have a Acura TL 3.2 1999

Not a guarantee but sounds like your thermostat is worn , so not opening properly, or maybe not closing properly . When you turn on a/c your fan comes on drawing in cool air to radiator ... Actually should also check fan sensor , fuse and the big block fuse under good .
Most likely one of those two problems . Anything else is likely not as easy or cheap to fix .
