So this is a new one I haven't seen before. Came home today and when I went to turn off the car and take the key out, the key was in my hands, I was outside of the car, and the engine was still running.
I got back in the car, put the key back in, started and stopped the engine again and it shut itself off that time.
Anything to be concerned about? Anyone else see anything similar?
The ralliart and evo x do not have any built in turbo timers that im aware of? At 7k miles this is probably your first summer. Its just your fan running. It'll do that when your car is really hot or when you have the ac on. The fan is godawefully loud.
I've been encountering this on a routine basis on my '10 SE w/ 9kmi. After the key is turned to the off position, the engine continues to run for about 5sec or so. Engine sounds normal during this time. (Not like an old diesiling chevys) It doesn't seem to matter how warm/cold the engine is either. I just figured it was some sort of OEM turbo "timer". Honestly, it hasn't really concerned me enough to verify whether this is normal behavior or not. But it sounds like I'm not the only one noticing it.
Drives: Evo VIII(SOLD) - 08 WW EVO X(SOLD) -2009 IS250 :(

Yes, some people on here can't read, and thanks for posting that. I never knew that about the SST's. But one poster in this thread has a GSR, in his case it is just the fans staying on for a little while, not the engine.
There is no turbo timer. If the engine is too hot after hard driving in hot weather, it cuts the fans on for a minute.
