Check your cold start sensor. You also might have a tranny issue (let's pray this isn't the case)

Oil light comes on if at first i start again it will go off then ok

The oil light should come on while you start the car and then when it starts, the oil light should go off.
Id it is xoming kn at any other time, you may be low on oil and need to check it and add oil as necessary. If the oil level is above the add mark you should be oK. But make sure you check it when the car has been off and idle idle long enough for the oil to drain from the engine and return to the oil pan. If it persists, it could be the oil pressure sending unit or a loose or worn electrical connection. If the light still comes on, take it to a certified mechanic for diagnosis. It could be the oil pump.

Rpm jumps up and down after 30 second when engine is running and stays that way

Idle air control valve, (IAC) check for low coolant, (only when the engine is cold). Low coolant can cause the IAC to malfunction. Or a vacuum leak.

How do you reset the timing on a 1998 VW Jetta?

a car of that year should have an ecu controlling fuel air mix etc. this normally controls the timing.
To reset the ecu on my '95 VW Golf disconnect the battery (negative / black terminal) for 15-30 minutes depending on who you ask. So I do 30 minutes.
If it has central locking make sure you don't leave the keys in the car when reconnect it. swich on the ignition without starting the engine so the dash lights up with the oil light etc. for 30 seconds then off for 10 seconds. then start your car. It will relearn so it will run a bit rough for a while but should settle down. take it for a spin on different types of road ie. slow and fast.

Maintenance light blinks several times when I turn my 1999 Acura TL on. It goes off after about 30 seconds should I be concerned.

this may mean its time for an oil change it's the cars way of saying it's time for a scheduled maintenance.
Turn the key off and push and hold the select button. Keep holding while you turn the key to the on position (not the start position) keep holding for about 15 seconds then turn the key back off . next turn the key back to on position the light should only come on once. now you can start the car

Vtm & check engine light on same time vehicle idles 25K, 2001 MDX

Im not quite sure about the lights but when changing the alternator the battery cables would have been off resetting the settings in the engine computer. let it run for a little bit to get readjusted and it should idle down on its own and be fine.

Engine runs really hot, and engine light comes on while in D4

I had the same problems with my Acura Legend. On the problem with the running hot and the idling up and down, your cooling system is low. Fill your cooling system start it up and look for leaks, steam, or etc. repair and refill and your problem should be cured if the cooling system is full. At this time i'm working on the other problem. Good Luck
