    By "still working" do you mean it is still firing, possibly sputtering while waiting to shut down?

The engine is "dieseling" ... the cylinders probably have "hot spots" or a fuel injector is "leaking" into a cylinder.

Same cure for both: Obtain a can of "fuel injector cleaner" ($6) or better yet, a can of "Complete Fuel System" cleaner ($10) at any auto supply store.

Add to your gasoline tank.

It will correct the issue within a couple of days' use. Buy brand name, not "store brand", even if you save a couple of bucks, the dieseling can damage your engine.

One trick to temporarily stop the dieseling is when you are ready to turn off the car, turn off your car in "Drive" instead of "Park"; then after the engine stops (immediately) put the car in Park. "Drive" will put enough load on the engine to prevent it from running.

Hope this helps!

If the cam shaft sender goes out will it shut the car down even if no sputtering or no warning and it's running,just cut off like you turned the key off


it will just shut off the engine because the ECM will have no idea of the position of the cam in relation to the piston
The ECM needs to know the exact position of the crank and cam shafts to determine the ignition timing so if one or both go out then the engine stops
If course if the timing belt breaks the same result happens as the cam shaft sensor stops sending a signal to the ECM so the ECM shuts the engine down

Fan will run for a certain period of time after shutting down motor of vehicle. This is normal. Your engine is still hot when you turn the key off. There are sensors that tell the computer when the engine is cool enough for the fans to shut off.

Engine won't shut down


Look on the back of the injector pump for a wire connection. If there is no wire there find it and reconnect it. If it is there, the ignition switch may not be stopping power to it.

Intermittent electrical shutdown


It sounds like the fuel filter is near to the end of it's life and needs to be replaced. The filter is located at the inside frame rail just forward of the transmission cross member. if you have not replaced the fuel filter before, you may want to take it to a shop that can replace it for you like pep boys. Just call around for the price and if your up for replacing the filter your self you can get the filter at Auto Zone and they will have the step by step instruction and have loner tools to disconnect the filter from the fuel line. Good luck and hope this helps
