Question

Without me cars could not go,

I was important ever so.

But now with changes near complete,

I fear I'll become obsolete.

When tides need turning in a rout,

It seems that hope may come about.

For there’s a chance yet of a coup,

Don’t stop now I’m coming through.

Gripping terror, clenching jaws,

I can't escape her deadly claws.

This vicious beast may be my end,

With strength I cannot comprehend.

I was thinking simply
Engine, or combustion.

Oh that actually fits quite well!!

But alas, not what I'm looking for. When you see the answer you'll know it's the answer (I hope :huh: )

I have a hint that won't give it away but I'm saving it for later.

Additional Stanza!

The old hen wondered about her brood

how many would live or become food

Their journies together as a batch

For they still had yet to hatch

Gas?

Momentum?

Not yet, keep in mind each stanza has the same answer and there are 4 now (added another one a few posts back).

Hopefully I didn't miss something and make this unsolvable :(

scrambled?

That would fit the last stanza but don't forget the other 3. If no one gets it before I go to lunch I'll put a hint in spoilers.
