As you may recall, the wife was driving
down a rural road about 2 miles from here, and the engine started racing away.
Mark I looked for that thread ---never could find it in archives. IMHO she did the
right thing.----further I nominate her for Honorary Membership in the Runaway VW diesel
>From her point of view ? --get the Kids out --to hell with a diesel.----
Mark have you ever had a full runaway personally ? ----I have. --and the Noise and
SMOKE is incredible.----- now to be smart give her a course in how to handle a
runaway ---ALL the info can be found in this forum. -----NOT simple let me tell you.
Give the lady a BIG hug and reassure her that she is more important than a little lousy
German diesel.-----------and like mine ? you may find NO damage ?.---mine was a 1980
1.5L NA Rabbit. I know Jack about Passat 1996 TDI's.
BUT I do know this --- Most runaway VW's gets the fuel from the lube sump. all
that is to be found in archives.------I Hagar absolutely HATE all that resirculation of
exhaust and fumes from crankcase.
PS : how old are the kids ? and how many ?.
