My '79 240D won't stop when I turn the key off.
It's a manual trans., so I can stall it without resorting to the "stop" lever.

*All the vacuum locks work perfectly.*

1. fuel cutoff valve?
2. faulty ignition switch?
3. *will it hurt anything to put off repairs for a few weeks?v (it's cold here)
thanks

My guess is you have a vacuum problem- common occurance on diesels (that's where the word dieseling comes from) check all vacuum hose connections they are small clusters and sometimes jar loose particularly if a non-benzer has changed the oil filter.

Be sure to look at the hoses that are under the hood color is brown. They are the ones for the shut off circuit. Do not put off this repair. Oil is getting into the system if the diaphram has failed for the shut off.
