Have you ever heard of a runaway engine? It happens to diesels every once in a while, and for inexperienced drivers, this can be a nerve-racking experience. Runaway engines start to build up the RPMs and rev out like crazy until the moment they finally break!
Although this may sound unreal, it does happen from time to time. So, is there an easy fix? Well, the sad truth is that sometimes, not even pulling the keys out and shutting down the engine will work out, as the self-destruction process will only continue.
Some individuals claim that selecting the highest gear and then dumping the clutch while simultaneously stepping on the brake should shut down the engine. Other say that all you need to do is cover the air flow and thus the engine will shut down instantly. While these things might work in theory, it’s a different ballgame when it happens to you!
