When you turn the key off, it is still running? Check for spark at the plugs, when the problem is ongoing, if no spark, it is dieseling. Compression too high can cause it. Also, a hot spot in the cylinder/s can cause it. You can try a higher grade of gasoline, I don't know what grade is recommended?
