BMW 524td E28 runaway diesel, turbo failure heavy smoke engine failure
My 524td somewhat blew the turbocharger 20 miles before I recorded this video, it was making funny whistling noises and lost power... I thought I would still make it to work, but I was proven wrong. Broke down on a pretty long, steep incline. Really heavy white blueish smoke, watch trucks back up behind me due to bad sight. Got off the highway on the next exit. Engine wouldn't shut off using the injection pump kill switch, it kept on running from the oil it was sucking in through the broken charger. Some turbine fragments and pieces of gaskets were in the turbo outlet :)

Dodge running away after pull
Blew an o-ring on the turbo and started to run on motor oil sucked into intake. Finally killed it after shooting a dry-chem fire extinguisher into the intake.
EPIC FAIL Turbo blown Detroit Diesel Series 60 12.7 MCI BUS smokey mess!
This engine did not run away, it was not sucking in oil. The driver thought the bus was on fire and immediately began evacuating passengers as soon as the bus stopped. For the person that called someone a dumbass and said the bus started in reverse, absurd! The bus has an automatic transmission - how is the starter going to crank the engine over in the proper direction THEN instead of turning right after its already spinning its just starts turning left? Absurd! The bus was shut off off once and was not restarted, it was towed from the scene. He shuts it off just as I pass by the rear of the bus(see annotation). I was behind this listening to the turbo climbing an overpass. There was a loud BOOM, then smoke everywhere I couldn't see a foot infront of me. turbo let go, leaving a trail of oil. All the smoke that you see, with out the proper air mix from the turbo the engine is not burning the fuel correctly so that's why you see all the gray smoke! The engine is running at around 1,000 RPM if the engine had ran away it would be have been loud an in pieces. A lowboy was called but couldn't pick up due to angle of over pass and potential for tipping. So, a wrecker was called to hook from the front.
