If both acceleration and velocity are 0 at the same time, it is a
clear indication that the engine isn't running at all.

And to Glen Powell:
You have to understand that "upwards deceleration" is exactly the same
as downward acceleration. Consequently, the transition from upwards
deceleration to downward acceleration, that you have mentioned
earlier, does not take place.
