So you all may have seen that I recently purchased my first tdi…. Less than a week ago. ya well I drove it for the first time today as I finally got it insured apart from the 1/2 drive home when I bought it. While driving I noticed the revs climbing when I wasn’t on the throttle. Perplexed and not thinking about a runaway engine I hit the clutch and the engine revved way passed redline before I could do anything. Stupidly I instinctively turned the ignition off (first diesel used to gassers being able to just cut the ignition) instead of stalling the car out. I had also instinctively pulled it out of gear or at least I think I did I don’t actually remember doing that. Within about 5 seconds of sheer panic the engine shut off and I was coasting to the side of the road. My questions are should I just scrap the car / part it out (I’ve never actually done this) so it would be a first. Or should I bite the bullet and try to put a new engine in it. This would be a big challenge for me as I’m 17 and have a very tight budget to work on with my minimum wage job and have never swapped and engine. Or should I try my luck selling the car as is. (Pm offers if interested). The car is mint besides the now I assume blown engine. I will be doing a compression test tomorrow to confirm however the car would not start after sitting for a while and I didn’t want to press my luck. Anyway it seems like god was not on my side today any advise or help would be greatly appreciated.
