Will the bankruptcy filing be canceled because of it?

I have a car worth $17k and the loan is near about $10k. Presently, I need cash very urgently, so I plan to get a second title loan as I have $4k equity in my car. I’ve to use the fund for necessary living expenses food, utility, water and so on when I file for bankruptcy.
