: URGENT: car keeps running after turned off.

I looked at a 2005 CTS-V today, but the car had two problems. Pleas help me determine how to adjust my offer.

1. The car runs for about two or three seconds, then shakes and shuts down after turning the ignition off. Is this normal for a high compression engine or is it a problem?

2. Error code P0708 - is this a CAGS problem? It never made me skip-shift when I was test driving it.

Would this be enough to scare you from buying the car at a good price?

Thanks a lot.

Motor mounts and bad gas.

well motor mounts would account for the shaking... my car does that, but it doesn't run for 2 or 3 seconds on its own.

yes, it takes 2 or 3 seconds to stop TURNING, but when i take the key out, it starts shaking (dying) right away.

Dieseling is usually the result of: bad gas, really bad plugs, or leaking injectors.
