engine will not turn off

I just gave my wife the money to buy a 1995 MB. I think it is a 300s td. She bought the wrong book I was told by the dealer when I was buying lights for the intrument panel. It first would not start in park, only nuetral. We adjusted the linkage of the nuetral safety switch, rebuilt the ignition switch, key tumbler, put in new glow plugs and changed the oil. Now it only starts in nuetral and she has to open the hood to stop it.

Somewhere we found a refence to a fuel shut off solinoid switch. Does anyone know why it does not shut off? [:(]

RE: engine will not turn off

that fuel shut off switch is either vacuum controled or it might be an electrical solenoid type either which you have to trace the power source problem. good luck
