My fear that the car will explode is mainly when I walk past cars & when I think about being alone driving in powerful cars. And if I think about driving an ordinary car my fear is that the break will ail & the car will start to move with me trapped in it. However, when I also had a similar experience but with a horse (terrified it would rea up & hurt me, even though I'd been round horses for ages by then & was normally fine), I found myself looking for the common factor in this bizarre fear. The common factor was claustrophobia. I'm phobic when I walk past cars & there's a narrow space because there's a wall or something on the other side of me, I'm phobic of being shut in the car, & I'm phobic when taking horses into stalls (narrow spaces, like parking spaces for horses in a barn). It turned out to be the lack of space between me & the car or horse & something else that was the factor, not simply cars or horses! And if you think about it, the space in a car is quite small & once you shut the door you're closed into a small space. Could this be your problem? I don't wish to play on your phobia, but I'm hoping that it will help you to understand what the problem is so you can seek the best possible help. I hope this helps.
