Nicks Corvette Stop : They don't build them like they use to, 30+ years since it's been cranked. 10k RPM blowing flames out of the exhaust like nothing lol.

Troy Burman : lets put a whole can of ether in it lmfao fuckin rookies

조본희 : use fire extinguisher to intake

sampoteste : I want to install one of those on my pickup truck



World Wide United NYS : another reason you're not suppose to spray ether directly into the turbo.

voluptuouspanic : I had this happen on my car due to the throttle linkage getting detached or stuck, I don't remember. Not a diesel though, a 66 inline 6 Chevy engine. I just turned it off. But it was pretty scary

Fireship1 : Older gent walked up to it calm as anything and choked it off. He's probably been working around diesels for years. You can tell this wasn't his first runaway, he knew exactly what to do!

Maximus Potentialus : Nothing like putting an old motor to its max on the first restart in years. It's kinda like doing a triathlon after eating burgers for a few years as training.

big D : Bull shit. the only things that got sucked in were his balls up into his ass. That's the only reason he didn't shit his pants. Way to save the day, SUPER GRANDPA.

Creeperboy : that starter sound though
