I have renault vel satis 2.2dci 2003 priviledge

Customer Question

I have renault vel satis 2.2dci 2003 priviledge. Car has been driving fine but with a little bit of faint whine. After driving up to my garage last night ,i gave it a wee rev up to just about 3000,then suddenly the engine revs went out of control.i could not stop it ,there was white smoke and steam everywhere. I removed key,pressed stop button,pulled bonnet and disconnected battery,but it still kept running at max revsfor about 3 mins before eventully stopping.let it cool down and some time later topped up water,and left it. This morning water level is still ok and oil level ok,but just turns over but does not start.advice would be helpfull. Thanks Ian XXXXXX
