Question Answered: 

The blower is just doing what it is "told" to do, something is "telling" the blower to come on, and that needs to be fixed. It could be a relay, control panel or something else. This should be looked at by a qualified technician that is good with electrical diagnosis.

If the cooling fan is coming on right away, this may be indicating something other than the idle valve. If the reading from a temperature sensor, or load sensor is incorrect, it can turn the fan on. I recommend you have it diagnosed to prevent replacing parts that are good.

This would seem to be difficult to stop or slow down, and would likely need repainting. I would take it to a a couple body shops and get a couple of opinions. Is it possible that the bumper has been pushed or hit by another car?

Question Answered: 

This could be from low refrigerant in the A/C system. That is what I would check first, if the refrigerant level is OK then check the cooling fan operation and the high and low side pressures.
