My car never diesels once switched off, does yours Troy? Scratching my head.
Just once has mine dieseled, and I think it was because of spending too much time at idle in the shop whilst I tuned the beast. Engine got too hot, and running with NGK 7 series plugs which probably turned into glow-plugs. She dieseled for probably 5 seconds before I said "enough" and dumped the clutch to stall her. Had a serious mis-fire after that (damn near fouled a brand new plug), but cleared up after a drive.
Anyway, amazing how long a car can diesel with the fuel pumps are no longer delivering any fuel.
Off-topic....so sorry! Spoke - nice ride man! Get your AFR's or at least the idle CO down to sea level and your performance, engine oil, and gas mileage will thank you.
