3.8. The engine decayed during the movement

Sooner or later each driver can get into a situation when the car several moments ago submitting to all teams suddenly ceases to react to pressing of a pedal of "gas", and on the dashboard red sparks light up. The engine ceased to work, the car loses speed. What to do in such situation?
The most important — be not nervous! Turn on the alarm system, squeeze out a pedal of coupling and, using inertia of the car, try to move carefully to the region of the carriageway and to stop as it is possible more to the right at a roadside and if it is possible — outside the carriageway.

Consider that at the idle engine efficiency of the brake system of the car decreases and for braking the bigger effort on a brake pedal can be required. The same happens to the steering equipped with the hydraulic booster.

Turn on the parking brake; if the car stopped on a bias, use an antiretractable emphasis. Under difficult traffic conditions and on country roads expose a sign of an emergency stop as it is provided by Traffic regulations. Now it is necessary to reveal and eliminate the arisen malfunction.
There are two main reasons:
– the system of ignition does not work;
– the power supply system does not work.
For a start find out whether there is in a tank a gasoline. Include ignition and look at the index of level of fuel. If the arrow of the index shows fuel availability, and the alarm lamp of the reserve rest of fuel in a combination of devices does not burn, it is possible to assume that gasoline in a tank is.
Open a cowl and attentively examine podkapotny space. Pay attention to an integrity of all units. Check, whether on the place all wires whether is not present torn off, burned down, with the damaged isolation. Examine petrol hoses, a fuel stage — whether there are no gasoline potek.

If gasoline leaks, do not launch the engine before full elimination of malfunction at all!

Examine a broad tank of the cooling system — whether cooling liquid flowed out. Check also oil level in an engine case. If everything is all right, start check of systems of ignition and food which is described earlier, but previously check a condition of a belt of the drive of the gas-distributing mechanism. At the torn-off belt the engine will not be launched without the visible reasons.
Besides, the failure of the sensor of provision of a bent shaft or a detachment of a block of a plait of wires from it can cause a sudden stop of the engine and impossibility of the subsequent start-up.
