Renault Laguna blown turbo
This was my Laguna 02, Whilst driving pretty fast on a motorway it suddenly lost over a half of its power. I pulled over to see what was it but found nothing. I wanted to continue to drive as I had a date but when I started the engine the rev counter hand went all the way up and the engine obviously was making a lot of noise. I wanted to stop the engine pressing the button but it wouldn't work then I saw a lot of smoke that made me scared :) I ripped out the access card to stop the engine but surprisingly it wouldn't work either and after a minute or so of trying I hit the idea to stall it on 1st gear with with the brakes on - thankfully it worked out. I found myself up in the smoke in the middle of motor way and a couple of minutes later the fire brigade was with me but there was nothing to put out. Called AA to get it of the motorway and that was the very last straw, never ever Renault again, sold it for parts! didn't get on the date and don't think the bird believed my story :)

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.
