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.

Why does an engine keep running after it is turned off?

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.

Why is it that when you turn the car off its still running in a1992 Honda Accord?

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.

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.)

A car is stopped at a two way stop sign and turning left and another car approaches and stops but is going straight who has the right of way?

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.
