What kind of engine swap can a USDM Honda Fit handle?

Irving is closest to right. Timing has nothing to do with the engine running after the ignition is turned off. Bad gasoline is the chief cause of dieseling in gasoline engines. There could be enough carbon buildup on the piston tops to increase the compression enough to cause even good gas to detonate from combustion. Check out the fuel additives at your local parts store and get something that will burn off the carbon, and get a higher grade of gasoline. Try gas from a station that you don't use all the time and see if that will cure the problem.

Do dodge canavan have a drain hole for transaxle or do i need remove all the bolts to drain the trans.?

The previous poster is correct...dieseling is generally caused by carbon deposits inside the combustion chamber. The deposits get hot, and on carbeurated cars, you only shut off the ignition when you switch off the car, so the hot carbon deposits act to ignite the fuel. Easiest method to stop it is to leave the truck in "drive", shut off the ignition, then move the shifter to Park. The slight load on the engine prevents it from turning so easily, which keeps the cylinder from being as likely to receive a fresh charge.

The only other real option is to have the head rebuilt, which will remove the accumulated carbon deposits. They'll come back, though.
