Diesel Engine Runaway on M4

Post by taytos » Sun May 25, 2014 2:24 pm

Managed to get some video of a diesel engine going pop on the way back from London today... tried to help as I'd seen a youtube video of a guy covering the air intake on a runaway diesel before which stopped it melting, guy didn't know where his air filter was and after I had a coolant shower from it I stopped looking and it seized soon after.

Cut the video before the fire engines showed up, he was getting a little emotional about it.

You're a braver man than me.
Fair play for trying to help.
