Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Montero
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!
