    It means "misfire." 车子的引擎熄火了。The car's engine misfired/cut out.

     

    Just to make sure, I looked up the word "misfire" in my dictionary. It doesn't mean 熄火.
    熄火 is typically used to an engine. 引擎熄火 = an engine stall

    1 將火熄滅。
    如:「營火晚會後,務必記得熄火,以策安全。」

    2 機動車輛的引擎停止運轉。
    如:「這輛老爺車,一旦熄火,要想再發動,可就比登天還難囉!」

    ancient chinese,in ancient,china havnt electricity,so people use candle or oil,u konw "火",and '熄'mean ,put the fire down,Now this word can be used as car engine shut down, etc.,
