Seen it on a small Vauxhall Diesel, smoke filled both lanes of the motorway as the family just watched on the hard shoulder for it to blow...

Yeah its a horrible thing to have to witness if your not aware of what's happaning. Most people first reaction is to switch off the engine......which makes feck-all difference.

I had a 2005 Espace (1.9Dci) in the workshop last summer which had suffered this fate.....my son's nanny had just started it in a local supermarket car park when it ran away with itself. It ran for about 2 minutes...............and then stopped very suddenly .

Recon engine job.

So just stick it in the highest gear and stall it then?

No I don't think so.
I think when the filter clogs the engine burns fuel harder in ordrer burn off the soot build up - thus putting more stress & heat on the moving bits and the oil.....risks longer term damage.
Don't understand it, but that how it was explianed to me.....
Still arguing ith Nissan as to why the consider a part they replaced under warranty only a year ago and has failed again is nothing to dowith them.
Their latest excuse is......"the car can't have been driven to the "specification conformity required", as the filter would clog under proper use. I'm not sure how runs on 50-200 miles most days cruising at 2,000-2,500 revs withthe engine at operating temperature for most of the journey is not "driving to the conformity specification required" - although to be honest I don't know exactly what that means!

That's turbo seals. It's quite impressive but scary and can happen to any turbocharged engine - I've only seen it once. Here's a sample from Youtube...

What happens with the revving bit is that, as BogMonster says, it's the turbo seals. As the diesel has no ignition, when the seals go the unit starts fuelling itself through the seals with oil and it effectively self governs itself to maximum revs.
Happened on a friends 530d which used up all its oil and stopped. Strangely all it needed was a service and didn't appear to suffer at all. It was an auto so he couldn't stall it. Would be interesting to see how many times a clutch would deal with a redline stall!!!

1989 Nissan Safari with a TD42 inline 6 diesel.. Probably one of the most bulletproof engines you'll find anywhere (some of the Aussies have 2.5-3 million km on theirs without a rebuild), but it is gutless without a turbo. Fortunately it is in the process of having one fitted .

Nissan never brought Patrols/Safaris to North America, which is a real shame. This was originally a Japanese Domestic Market vehicle that was eventually imported privately. Planning to keep this one for a long time.
