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.

Check, whether on the place all wires whether is not present torn off, burned down, with the damaged isolation. Examine petrol hoses, a fuel-supply line of the engine and the fuel filter and be convinced that there are no gasoline potek.
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 system of ignition and system of injection of fuel which is described earlier.
