sounds like she might of got a bit hot and the timing maybe over advanced which will cause it to run-on.

remember you have to get it in to diognostic mode to set the base timing and then set it at 10 degres at normal operating temp or even 9 if ure using standard unleaded if you using 98 you should b able to run 12 at least also air leaks def play a bg factor as mentioned with the booster wich is common along with the one way valve and the hose cracking get a vacc gaugge on it and see what the readins are at least 15-18 hg at idlle,

Hey mate,

I had the same problem in my EF. It turned out to be the ignition barrel was rooted and the wires were all crossed up.

Just something to keep in mind

if you had a trailer on and your foot on the brake they dont turn off for some reason until you release the brake pedal a mate of mine had a ED xr6 that did this and it was just the trailer plug at the back of the car
