I noticed that my car's motor was still going on when I stopped and put on 'park'. I tried putting on 'drive' and it would stop, but on 'park' it's working like I still had my foot on the pedal. What do u think that could be? The panel shows that the motor is running.

Check for vacuum leaks and also if the throttle plate is fully closed if not, it will make the engine diesel/run-on

I dont know, I can check on my insurance card later and then I'll write it here. That happens only in park, in reverse or drive it is normal.
