Random thought: For you people that know more than I do about diesel engines. What causes an engine to run away and how do you stop it? Just heard that that was a thing today.

Not sure how you stop it, but it's when the engine gets extra fuel and continues to overspeed and keeps raising the rpms until failure. Basically.

+1.

Best way to stop it depends on manual or auto.

Manual - While at a complete stop, put it in the highest gear (i.e. 5th or 6th) and dump the clutch. Unless you're in a high powered monster car/truck, it should kill the engine. If not, read next:

Auto - stuff something in the intake. Diesels are like gasoline engines in which you need air and fuel to make it run. Stuff a rag in the intake and you cut off the air supply, causing it to die.

The 100% most effective way I've ever seen, was a gentleman popped open the intake lid on his truck and unloaded a fire extinguisher in it. Killed the motor in a heartbeat.

Fuel. Air. Spark.

Remove any one of the three and an engine can't function.

As was said, generally this is the result of the engine getting extra fuel. This can take the form of lube oil getting into the intake (some older Detroit Diesels used by the US Navy were known for doing this, mainly due to their requirement for repeatedly testing the emergency shutdown. Over time this would cause the oil seals on the superchargers to get displaced thereby allowing lube oil into the intake) or a failure of the fuel system. Probably the best way to shut down an engine is to interrupt the fuel supply. Barring that, then cut off the air supply (although that can bite you in the ass as noted above). Industrial diesels have some sort of overspeed trip that can also shut things down, this is usually done by shutting off the air supply.

Do the FCs not sell well? If I can't fix my car, I'm going to part it out and try to get this (as long as it's a good deal): https://newyork.craigslist.org/jsy/cto/5601277210.html

You want to go from a Miata to a rotary platform?

I just want to make sure I understand that right.

Well, this one caught my eye. >.>

It's not a definite, I just would like to have one over a Miata, yes. Plus look at that price. If there's really nothing wrong with it besides the radiator fan, I would totally take it.

That's really not a bad price for what it is; but if I were you, I would not get it. From what I've seen you mention here in the forums, it would not be a good option. You're in high school with a very limited budget and, most likely, not that familiar with a rotary platform.

On average, you will have more problems with the rx7 than you would with the miata.

It actually turns out that the guy had it listed for $8,500 and he put $12,000 worth of work into it. He had to drop the price because he needs money for rent and stuff; there's a whole story behind it. If I had the cash I would totally buy it and try to sell it immediately.

There's a reason besides that why he dropped the price. It means that he's been having a hard time trying to sell it at that price, so he lowered it to a more reasonable price.

So you want to get a car that the owner is having a hard time selling... so you can sell it.

We live in southern AZ. No yardwork to speak of, unless one is wasting an awful lot of water to produce said yard.

Dill pickles with a burger. How you cannot like that is beyond me unless you're some damn kind of communist.

Maybe I should just give up on everything for now. Just sell my car so I have money for college and give up my plans for MATG. I'll bet you all $100 each that I'll blow something up on the way down if I keep it.

Things won't blow up on you if you fix it right. Why would you sell your car?

That's $9500 for the whole lot; not $1000. Still not bad, but that's a high capital investment on something that most likely has a long return rate of revenue.
