There should be a fuel shutoff that needs to be adjusted, but let the car idle a couple of minutes before shutting it off and the valves should cool off enough to not diesel.

This is called "dieseling" and is a bad thing. There are several reasons it might happen, but the short answer is "take it to a mechanic, tell him it's dieseling, and let him figure it out."

Check your timing and if it is a carb, check to make sure the air fuel mixture is set properly.

Several things can cause this phenomenon, called dieseling. Built up carbon in the cylinders, incorrect timing, an overheated engine, a lean carburetor setting, or a fast idle can all be contributors to dieseling.?æ

There are many possibilities. More information is needed. If it's a 70's era car that's dieseling, could be the timing is off, or the anti-dieseling solenoid isn't working. If the car has had an electric fan installed recently, and won't shut off when the fan is running, the fan is not properly wired. If it's a computer controlled car, could be a problem with the ignition switch or ecm.

If it runs fine, probably an Ignition Cylinder problem If it runs kinda funny, probably it's just "dieseling"

User Avatar

That's called dieseling, and the main thing that causes it is improper ignition timing.

You did not specify make model and year. If you have a very old car It could be doing what is called dieseling. OR The engine computer could be keeping it running to try to get it to cool off. But with out knowing what car it is those are just guesses.

the solution can depend on the year and induction type. usually too high an idle speed and rich idle mixture combine to allow a hot carbon chunk in the cylinder to ignite the mix and cause the dieseling. on injected engine its far less common but leaky injectors have been known to cause the condition also

The braking system makes a car stop.

You should stop your car just before the line, ensuring that no part of your car crosses it.

If by "stop the engine", you mean turn the car off, then the answer is NO!

Motorcycles can stop faster than a car

Rolling friction causes a car to stop.

Dieseling or "Run-on" occurs when the engine is so hot that the fuel in the engine ignites without the spark plugs firing. On newer cars, like this '92 Honda, there should be an anti-dieseling valve that will turn off the fuel. That might have failed and will need to be replaced. After your engine has cooled, check the coolant level. If the coolant is too low, it can contribute to the engine overheating. If the radiator fan is not running while your car is dieseling you can bank on problems with the cooling system. The '92 accord, I believe, still has a thermostat switch that turns the electric radiator fan on. That could be bad or the fan could be burned out.

To end (stop) a race car, press the brake pedal.

When the car is coming to a stop, it is decelerating--or it has negative acceleration.

the brakes use friction to stop the car

If you mean that the engine continues to sort of run after the ignition is switched off, this is called "dieseling." It's not a good thing, and there are several potential causes. You'd probably need to take it to a mechanic to have it diagnosed and repaired. (If you didn't already know this, it's probably not something you can diagnose and fix yourself.)

The car breaks (brakes) stop the car.

Yes because a car doesn't have to stop at every stop

It takes less force to stop a train than to stop a car.

If a car is turning left from a stop sign and another car is coming towards them that also has to stop, the car that got to the stop sign first has the right of way. If they both get to the stop sign at the same time, the car that is going straight has the right of way.
