It is "dieseling". Chances are it is running HOT, and/or lean. Usually if you put it back in gear, it will mellow out. The solution would be to decerase the operating temperature by putting a cooler thermostat in, or enrich you mixture.

Well, apparently we've a sticking relay on our hands. How do you normally shut 'er down? gun it with the parking brake engaged?...and walk away? Does this 'kill' the battery? Does tuckin in for a nite sleep keep draining the battery?
