I have a 1987 Toyota tercel with 156,000 miles on it. It runs great, but a couple of times lately it has kept running "roughly" a few seconds after shutting the car off. Then its hard to start up right away, but starts up fine later on. Whats wrong?

Do you
have the same problem?

Timming could be advanced a bit too far, check with a timing light, also get a can of seafoam and follw the directions for it's use, this will clean the combustion chambers, you may have a carbon build up problem.
