Kaboom! MUNI Bus Engine Blows Up, Spilling 32 Quarts of Oil All Over Geary

This was the scene today in the Inner Richmond on Geary Boulevard - artic 38 Geary bus #6243 had its biodiesel engine spill its guts on the street right in front of the Mel’s Drive-In. That shiny black stuff isn’t coolant, it’s 32 or so quarts of motor oil. It got tracked around a bit by impatient drivers.

The mechanic sent to help got started spreading sawdust with a quickness so the oil wouldn’t get into the sewer system. He was looking forward to the hazmat team showing up, it appeared.

Maybe the engine threw a rod or something. It’s soul is probably already up at the MUNI service yard in the sky.
