The three main things that happen to cause a car to catch fire is:

- A mechanical failure, such as a stuck strap or brake pad causes massive overheating through friction

- Electrical malfunction or short circuit or

- An oil or (worse) a fuel leak cause the liquids to come into contact with areas of the vehicle which are hot enough to ignite them.
