1997 Grand am There is a ticking sound when it is Idle I looked under the hood at the belts and it seems that when Idle the pully at the bottom is turning much slower than the top ones is it timing?
short answer: No. It's not timing. Long answer: If it were timing, the entire engine would be out of sync. The timing controls the aspects of the engine, specifically the piston/valve/ignition(spark). In this case let's assume that the pistons are your lungs, and the valves act as your mouth. If the timing were off (as drastically as you indicate) it would be like trying to breath with your mouth and nose closed.( ie. your car wouldn't run at all, never start in fact.) try to locate the source of the "ticking" sound.... could be somthing stuck to your belt, could be a sticky lifter (the part that moves your valves). could be that you ran the car low on oil in the recent past, and are noticing some wear in your connecting rods... lots of reasons. First be more specific about the location of the sound, and does it change aspects (louder, softer, deeper, lighter) when revving the engine, or when the car is in gear.
Will a starter slowly go bad or is it instant Motor started turning over slower and slower over a couple of days and I don't know if its the starter or battery?
yes that's exactly what happens, the starter can get slower and slower over a couple days and then it won't start at all. you won't be able to "jump start" battery either. starter must be replaced..if u can find a used or rebuilt one, they're jst as good. new starter approx. $90-$130. used around $40
Yes, it did. The common response procedure to collision at the time was to put the engines on reverse, slow the ship down, and try turning. However, after slowing down, the Titanic lost its momentum from speed. This was an important factor in the crash. If the Titanic had continued at a high speed and turned away from the iceberg like that, the momentum provided by the speed would help swing the Titanic away from…
