On a 1989 Chevy Cavalier is it the torque converter causing the car to bog-down die after 15 mins driving when braking or stopping taking 10 mins to cool enough to drive if so how do you fix it?

The torque converter solinoid is the problem. It is not unlocking the converter as the vehicle comes to a stop. Raise the left front of the car(or the whole car, if you have access to a hoist. Remove the left front wheel. Look in and you will see the valve body cover of the transmission. It is held in place by ten or twelve bolts. A 13mm 3/8 drive socket, an extention and ratchet is needed to remove the cover. A small amount of transmission fluid may leak out. When the cover is removed you will see two or three wires leading to the solinoid. Remove the "torx" screw holding the solinoid. Buy a new solinoid, about fifty or sixty bucks Canadian and a valve body cover gasket.Follow the instruction sheet for installation. Do not over tighten the cover bolts. Replace the wheel, lower the car, top up the trany fluid and your done... This should save you two to three hundred bucks in any countries money.

That is the correct spelling of "stopping" (ceasing, braking).

Braking means stopping. Accelerating means speeding up. Think about it.No.He is decelerating.

Threshold braking is modulating your braking so as to apply the maximum amount of braking possible before the wheels lock up (or in modern cars, before ABS kicks in). This provides the shortest stopping distance.

perception distance, reaction distance, and braking distance

User Avatar

The total stopping distance consists of perception distance, reaction distance and braking distance. All of these components would be added together to get the total stopping distance.

You dont skid so you can control the car while stopping

User Avatar

The greater the mass of the car and its occupants the longer the stopping distance that is required for the vehicle. Stopping distance is calculated by taking into account car mass and reaction time in braking

the combine to make the overall stopping distance david exford - lol

The water gets into the brakes and when you stop there is less friction.

Perception Distance + Reaction Distance+ Braking Distance.

Breaking: stopping something (e.g we broke up, it's breaking connection) used more widely=Braking: applying friction to stop something more for vehicles=

User Avatar

When traveling 30-mph, the braking distance is 45-feet, and the total stopping distance is 75-feet. This is the length of a semi-truck and trailer.

I assume you mean Anti-lock braking system. It prevents your wheels from locking up in an emergency stop situation, or when it detects that the wheel slippage rate is occurring at different rates under braking conditions.

User Avatar

when you press your foot on the brake, it triggers two metal plates which press on the wheel slowing and stopping it.

Exactly what their name implies - the prevent the brakes from locking up.

It has a superior design that features a greater braking force.
