What does the Speed Governor in a car do?
I know of no car today that has a governor. Cars are computer controlled and have either a rev limiter or a fuel shut off or both. The purpose is to limit the speed of the car, and/or the revolutions that the engine can turn.

Thanks for the feedback!
i have not tested it yet but according to my math my 2000 z24 cavalier picks up 26 mph for every thousand rpm in fifth gear so if you took the car to 6 thousand rpm whic…h is pushing it given wind factors and other variables your probably looking at 140 to 145.
The governor on the new Chargers are in the computer system - so a tuner (like the Diablo Predator) will allow you to change or remove the speed limiter.
It has a stock governor at 135 mph witch can be removed but not replaced or changed now on the 2011 mustangs there is an option called MYKEY witch allows a parent to have one …key that has no restrictions and one key (for your child) that limits speed to 80mph stereo sound to 40% and the seatbelt chime will not shut off until it is buckled. Hope I answered your question hahaha
The air effects the speed of the car because its kind of like a parachute. if you have a car that's not very aerodynamic it will catch the air and have to push it, but if you …take a car that's very aerodynamic it will slice the air and have very little Resistance.
Yes...a heavy car will accelerate slower, take longer to stop and ultimately have a lower top speed then if it were lighter. The first two are correct but the last is wrong. …The simple fact that the car IS heavier means there will be more kinetic energy achieved over a longer time to very fast top speed usually occur in heavier equipped cars with the correct type of engine. The fastest cars (the speed record holders) start slowly but gain very fast speed weigh in and more than 15,000 lbs. That is 3 to 5 times heavier than the typical car.
Ground effects term applied to a series of aerodynamic effects used in car design, which has been exploited to create downforce(downwards thrust created by the aerodynamic cha…racteristics of a car. The purpose of downforce is to allow a car to travel faster through a corner by increasing the vertical force on the tires, thus creating more grip.),
If the surface is rough/bumpy , the vehicle cant safely go as fast as it can on a smooth road. Also if the car is bouncing, it's aerodynamics will be disturbed causing more dr…ag. Ground clearance also has to be increased on rough roads, causing more drag.
A variable speed governor is an engine part that works with the engine to govern speeds required within the engine. It serves to keep the engine at a steady speed as set by th…e operator of the vehicle.
The most common use of a governor is to limit the top speed of the vehicle...most newer cars have them and the speed is set by the manufacturer...they can be changed with a fl…ash programmer for that specific vehicle.
You cannot; these are in place to control the speed of the rental vehicle, and will not permit the rental vehicle to go above 79 miles an hour, which is dangerous.
Use a tacometer drive the governor round with an electric drill and measure the speed the govenor trips. lift govenor speeds are factory set
yeah i was wondering the same thing and i think its just a small piece near the motor or the chain... loosen some sh*t and ull probly find it... google the picture of governor… and look for that.. hope that helps, im gonna try that this summer :0
Answer go buy a programmer such as hypertech's power programmer. That is about the only way to take out the top speed limiter unless you know a programmer …firsthand Answer wont work, it has obdII or On Board Diagnostics. You have to disable that. But it can also ruin ur engine
what is meant by speed
In Chevy S-10
Either replace the ECM or reflash it with new parameters.
the easiest way to find out is to find a nice open road and hold it flat out and if the engines cuts off at a certain speed then yes it does. i did this wit my 1991 town car a…nd it cut off at 105.
