    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

    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.,
