Hard to say. If you mean it keeps running after you turn the key off it sounds like it's all carboned up. The carbon (inside the cylinders) gets hot and acts like little spark plugs and keeps the engine running and knocking a while. If it does this all the time I suggest you do a compression check to see if it has a bad timing chain.

How does knocking at the end of Act II Scene 2 help build suspense in Macbeth?

Here's the situation. Two people have just committed a murder in a house full of sleeping people and they and their clothes are covered in blood. Then someone starts knocking on the door! Someone might wake up and see them all bloody! But one of the murderers is dazed and doesn't seem to get it. More knocking! Surely someone will wake up! The one murderer pleads with the other. "Get into your bedroom! Clean up! Change clothes! This is urgent!" But the other one doesn't go, and there is even more knocking. The one murderer gets more and more desperate, pushing and pulling the dazed one, hoping to get him inside before people start waking up and moving about because of the knocking, as the dazed one wishes that the knocking would awaken the man they have just murdered.I'd say that the knocking, by providing the threat that people will wake up and catch the Macbeths literally red-handed, builds suspense by making it more urgent that they go to their room and clean up.
