English term or phrase: to spark out
Sparkout wurde schon mal diskutiert (esl.proz.com/kudoz/1372633), ist auch hier ein "Druckverlust" gemeint?

Bitte übersetzt mir mal "sparked out" im Satz:

"I was down the straight and I came down the corner and turned down and I came through the corner and half-way through the corner it just sparked out and water came in the engine, I stalled."

Ach ja: Ich glaub nicht, dass ein Boot im Wasser "Funken sprühen" kann, falls jemand auf die Idee kommt, lass mich aber gern vom Gegenteil überzeugen...
