Who am I?

Hint:

It may be easy to get stuck on the word "balloon" because it stands out a bit. It is more important to first figure out what "go" can mean.

Is it

a car in a motor vehicle collision?

When you go, I may show.

When a person goes and drives a car, they may get into a motor collision with another car.

You fear me.

Obviously, a motor vehicle collision is a very scary situation no one wants to be in.

I'll blast if you're fast

If the car is going too fast, then a motor vehicle collision could result in a blast.

You'll hear me.

This could refer to the loud noise a collision creates.

You'll get a balloon

Balloon might be referring to the airbag in a car which inflates in a collision

and very soon, someone will come and clear me.

Emergency teams or a tow truck will arrive and clear the collision scene.

I think you are:

Diarrh##

When you go, I may show.

...

You fear me.

at least I do, it kills lots of people each year.

I'll blast if you're fast.

if you’re far away from the washroom, and go into a rush, you might get a blast

You'll hear me.

yes I do

You'll get a balloon and very soon,

ya, the balloon will explode, though

someone will come and clear me.

don’t worry, after the blast, people will clean it up

(writer’s note: this is partly answer, partly for fun)

Probably not the answer, but could it be

some type of alcoholic beverage?

When you go, I may show.

Alcohol is a common item in stores and restaurants.

You fear me.

People addicted to alcohol might fear it or the effect it has on them

I'll blast if you're fast.

You're supposed to slowly drink some alcoholic beverages, especially strong ones.

You'll hear me.

Not totally sure about this one...maybe it has to do with the sound of pouring another drink?

You'll get a balloon...

A balloon can also mean "a large rounded drinking glass, used for brandy and other drinks."

...and very soon, someone will come and clear me.

This could refer to a bartender coming to pick up your glass when you've finished.
