A little older automatic cars, many times will automatically turn off, at this time, you should be urgent to the car for the correct treatment or in time to the repair shop to check the car.
In case of this situation, the driver should not panic and quickly observe the surrounding traffic conditions. If the surrounding traffic conditions and conditions permit, he can try to restart the engine without stopping.
Because the automatic transmission vehicle has a neutral safety switch, the vehicle can only start in P and N gears. Because the vehicle is still coasting by inertia, you must not push the gear lever directly to p gear.
But you can shift to n gear first, and the way to restart the engine is: quickly push the shift lever into neutral (n), generally you can shift the shift lever from D gear to n gear without stepping on the brake, turn the ignition switch to start position, and then quickly pull the shift lever to D gear after the restart is successful, then you can drive normally. If the engine still can't start after many attempts, it means that the fault is serious. At this time, we should pull over and stop. Turn on the turn signal first and stop slowly while observing the traffic.
It is dangerous to restart the vehicle with automatic transmission after flameout. The driver must be familiar with the operation of the vehicle. If he pushes the transmission lever into reverse (R) with too much force, it will cause great damage to the transmission. The ignition switch of some cars has the function of preventing secondary starting. It must be turned back to the off position before it can be restarted, but be careful not to lock the steering wheel. In addition, after the engine flameout, the braking and steering power will also be invalid. At this time, more power is needed to control the vehicle.
If you are a novice, first stop the car down to the side of the road and ask for help or rescue. Remember: at any time, vehicles equipped with automatic transmission can not use reverse towing.
