you lost control at 40 km/h?
you drove it with a broken tie rod end?
if this post is genuine me thinks you need to get a mechanic come to your house and then a driving instructor

If you have check engine light on you need to get codes read. Once the suspension is sorted, you could try Supercheap, they'll read codes for not a lot of money, need to make an appointment for this. First I was thinking ABS sensor, but you said check engine light not ABS light. You could try disconnecting the battery for a while then reconnecting and see if the light is persistent and recurring, if it is, getting the codes read would be best way to go.

I'm trying to work out how you can drive with a broken tie rod. Or how you can be stupid enough to even try to do so.

Has to be a school kid about 6 or 7 years of age is my guess. Still a baby brain.
Can't spell, or put words together properly, let alone type.
Probably heard the word "tie rod" from somewhere and the baby mind decided to use it.

GET OFF YOUR MOTHERS/FATHERS COMPUTER BEFORE THEY CATCH YOU LOOKING UP STUFF THAT'S FOR GROWN UP PEOPLE.

Aww, fellas, you're being a bit harsh. He's not a 6 year old, he's a 46 year old. I thought by the time you reached that age, public wanking was in your past.
