probably carbon buildup in motor causing this. the buildup gets sharp points on it and will glow from the combustion heat and act like a sparl pkug or glow plug.use a good engine cleaner to get rid ofthis. i use tl3 deposit removerfrom autozone.comes in a white bottle and works really well

You might try readjusting the idle mixture screws,too rich a mixture can cause the engine to continue to run.

In my CJ there is something called the Anti-deisel soloniod...The book says that it prevents the continued running.
