Why Did My Car Catch Fire?
This is a common question that most people who are dealing with fire damaged automobile ask themselves. Basically, car fire causes are associated with electrical systems, fuel, petroleum-based fluids, and the exhaust system. By far, however, the most fires result from gasoline (fuel) related causes.
1. Fuel-Related Car Fires
These usually start at the fuel rail, where the fuel pressure and injectors exist. The O-rings in this region often wear out over time.
Since the fuel injectors and regulators are usually under pressure, they could cause a fuel leak if they force the fuel through a cracked or broken O-ring. If the leaking fuel comes into contact with a combination of oxygen and ignition source, this will create fire.
2. Electrical Related Car Fires
Electrical-related fires are usually a result of human error. The errors include:
- Poorly installed batteries.
- Incorrectly installed starters
- Loose high-voltage connections
3. Exhaust Related Car Fires
The exhaust system encompasses almost the whole length of the car. This means that it may feature a large number of hot spots. If the hot spots come into contact with leaking fuel, this could cause a fire.
4. Car Fires Caused by Petroleum-Based Fluids
Petroleum-based fluids are available in various parts of the car, including rear-end differentials, engine, and the transmission. Fires related to the petroleum-based fluids generally result from build-ups, which happen over time.
