As you may recall, the wife was driving
down a rural road about 2 miles from here, and the engine started racing away.
Mark Fairlane.

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.

Hagar :

PS : how old are the kids ?  and how many ?.
