hi guys
I have a major problem with my 2006 2.2 diesel civic, driving home at 70 mph and all of a sudden engine revved to maximum dipped clutch and switched off engine and it did not switch off tried it again and eventually engine came to a halt AA came out and a pool of oil on ground smoke everywhere.

Car wont start but turns over please help

Ah, Mate I feel for you.

Sounds like Diesel runaway not good at all. You were lucky to stop it befor it destroyed itself. One way is to try to stall it. Mostly comes from over filling the oil.

If it was indeed a runaway it could have gone way past the red line and done some serious damage.

Bummer.

This is the first time of hearing about diesel runaway. Sounds bad though.

Basically if you overfill the oil on a dielsel the engine will end up running using the sump oil, and rev to destruction.

Have a look at this example guys:

id say slim to none to be honest mate dont want to put a downer on you unless you can prove it was a faulty part rather than user/previous user error as explained before.

If that fails breakers yards! dont get rid of the civic they have so much potential and will give you so much joy read through the whole forum and youll see!

Im a convert! and doubt ill ever leave honda now

Relic i dont suppose you know how much work would have to go into rectifying this would it be new engine and turbo? or could there be a rebuild etc!

Just wondered so that he has the most cost effective option?
Depends if the pool of oil was under the crankcase.
Probably meaning cracked sump due to internal impact if so.

Engines on over run rarely stop until they have eaten the internals.
This is a honda engine and can probbaly run at the 4800 limiter for a fair while.
But the limiter works by cutting the fueling....which is useless if the fuel is coming from elsewhere.
So if he is really lucky the ECU would have seen the smoke limiter exceeded and killed all fuel to get it within limits.
Then its a question of how much secondary oil is being fed to the engine.

So I would say if the engine was still running at full rpm with the engine off...it will be way over 4800rpm and the components destroyed.
Just a question of which part fails 1st decides what damage is done.
Even then...the remaining parts would have been under so much stress you'd have to question their remaining lifespan.

So in this case I personally wouldnt settle for anything less than a replacement engine.
And Id be in tears.
:(

Their is the miracle situation were the engine runs out of oil before it detonates.
But then it will probably seize up instead and destroy the bearings.

Probaly cheaper to buy another car being realistic (donor or replacement).

Corrrrr just looked at those prices tbh seems only way is to be very nice to Honda, new car or engine from a breakers which could be hit and miss but some have guarantees for engines and go cheap as chips as they make most of the metal

derv eng on the bay few weeks back at £2400 about 14k miles might be worth searching for.
