you have some carbon buildup on pistons which is normal
the carbon gets hot and ignites the fuel and is why the engine "runs on" if it is idled too high it makes worse try running some top engine cleaner or sea foam thru engine and adjust idel

I have a 65 ford mustang,perfect conditions, however i think its time for a check up, but i dont know where to take it and im afraid of the cost

If you've got a 65 Mustang in perfect condition, don't worry about the cost. The car's worth more than you think! I'd find a classic car club to jion and ask other members who they trust. Many of them won't answer but a few will. Otherwise, check your local BBB for car repair shops with good ratings.

Your door switch is out of adjustment or is just going bad. Even if your interior lights turn off when you shut the door, the switch is still out of adjustment or just going bad. take it to the dealer and have them look at it. they should be able to solve the problem for $20.00 or maybe even for free if you have them do other work like an oil change.
