    COMMON EMERGENCIES THAT CAN OCCUR WHILE DRIVING

    Things can and do go wrong even with the most experienced driver.

    Here's how to cope:

      Out of gas Pull off to the side of the road. If there are not gas stations within a safe walking distance, or if it is after dark, tie a red cloth to your antenna. Wait inside your vehicle until help arrives

      Brake failure Pump brakes rapidly to restore pressure. If still not working, shift to lower gear and slowly apply the parking brake, but continue to hold onto it so you can release it if rear wheels lock and you begin to skid

      Hood latch failure Reduce speed and use center line as visual steering guide. Either look through windshield under the hood or stick your head out of the window so you can pull off the road safely

      Steering failure Turn on emergency flashers and sound your horn to warn others. Brake and stop as soon as it is safe. Try to guide your vehicle off the road if possible

      Jammed accelerator Tap pedal to "un-jam" accelerator or pull it up with the toe of your shoe. Don't bend down to do it. If still stuck, shift to neutral and apply brakes. Pull to the side of the road and turn off the ignition

      Engine fire Pull off the road. Turn off ignition. Get everyone out of the vehicle. If safe, open hood with a cloth and use sand, blanket, dirt or a fire extinguisher to put out the fire

      Tire failure Pull off the road to repair. Never stop in a lane of traffic

      Overheated engine Pull off the road and let engine cool for at least 15 minutes. Slowly remove the radiator cap with a cloth being careful of very hot escaping steam. Add coolant if necessary. Add water while the engine is running. Never add cold water to an overheated engine that is turned off. Check for a leak

      Stalling engine Don't turn off the vehicle, you may lock the steering column. Instead, shift to neutral and pull off the road

      Low oil pressure Stop your car as soon as it is safe and let the engine cool. Once cooled, check the oil level and add oil if necessary. Don't keep driving if your oil is dangerously low or you will risk permanent and major damage to the engine block
