If you mean your car has a big engine but your car isn't going as fast as you know the car can with that size of engine. If that's what your thinking of than your car probably has a chip wich is limmitin your speed.

Why not put wire mesh in front of plane engine to control bird strike?

That might work for a stationary engine, but for a plane at speed the impact would be so strong that a wire mesh would have to be unacceptably thick and heavy to be strong enough to catch a bird. Come to think of it, there's a probability that a mesh would simply dice the bird on its way into the engine even if the mesh could be made stsrong enough.

How does it effect your car when the input output speed sensor goes out?

I doubt that you even will be able to start the engine.

Why does engine continue to run for a few seconds after ignition is turned off It is not dieseling?

It could be a serious carbon build-up in the cylinders, which glows hot enough to ignite the fuel even when there is no spark. The only reason the engine stops when you turn the key is that the spark stops. So if something else can ignite the fuel, the engine will run.

Why an electron does not enter the nucleus even though they are oppositely charged?

At a very rough guess the same reason we don't enter the sun even though gravity pulls us: The speed and direction of the electron is maintained while the opposite change has a strong enough magnetic effect to stop it from escaping.

What transmissions were available in a 79 trans am with a 403 engine?

The TH350 was the standard tranny. I'm not sure if it could even be ordered with a 4 speed and the 403 engine. In 79 every Pontiac equipped T/A was a 4 speed. But I'm not sure if the 4 speed was available with the 403.

Why do engine looses acceleration after a certain speed?

Acceleration is the a change in speed or direction. Once a vehicle reaches a point where it is maintaining its speed but no longer increasing (or decreasing) the acceleration is zero. Even though you may be moving rapidly it is at a constant speed.

What is the maximum speed limit on a runway?

There is no speed limit, aircraft have differant take-off speeds called V1 - is the critical engine failure recognition speed or takeoff decision speed. It is the decision speed nominated by the pilot which satisfies all safety rules, and above which the takeoff will continue even if an engine fails. The speed will vary between aircraft types and also due to aircraft weight, runway length, wing flap setting, engine thrust used, runway surface contamination and other factors V 2 - Takeoff safety speed. The speed at which the aircraft may safely become airborne with one engine inoperative. -Wikipedia

If a car is traveling at the speed of light can you see its headlights?

Answer: No. Reason: You wouldn't even be able to see the car. Why: Because all of the energy in the universe would be needed to get the car up to the speed of light,

What could happen to the vehicle if the ets is not working properly?

Your engine will supply power even if you don't have enough grip. And you will have an dash light.

Why does starter only engage part of the time?

The starter in your vehicle works at a very low speed. It is only used to crank the engine enough to help it run from a standstill. The car's normal idle speed is +/- 700 - 800rpm. Even at this low speed it would be too fast for the starter to handle. Furthermore, keeping the starter engaged would cause unnecessary wear on the starter parts, as well as the flywheel gear (ringgear). It would also be another mechanical device the engine has to turn, thus decreasing the efficiency.

Why can't we travel faster than the speed of light?

We believe the speed of light to be the universal speed limit, so nothing can go as fast as this. Photons have no mass at all, so therefore in accordance to E=mc squared, all their possible mass is present as energy. According to relativity, an object's mass at any speed is related to its speed; where this speed approaches that of light, its mass approaches infinity. And it'd take infinite energy to accelerate an infinite mass. Even nearing it, we still reach two barriers: you can't get enough force to accelerate that kind of mass fast enough and you can't get enough space or time to accelerate it enough in total.

Can a battery that fails the storage capacity test keep an engine from starting - even when the engine still cranks?

No. If you have enough power for the engine to crank then it has enough power to run the other systems. ALSO..i've started a car with a good battery and replaced it with "unknown battery" and it has stalled the motor. Starter and everything was good. Technically, even if the battery is dead and all other systems are normal this shouldn't happen. Go figure.

Motion with uniform velocity. * * * * * There is absolutely no reason for the velocity - or even speed - to remain constant. It is linear motion an that is all that there is to it.

Is there enough valve clearance from the piston on a Mazda mx3 1.8 when the timing belt slips?

''no ,it is an interference engine'' Wrong! Not even one mx-3 with 1.8 v6 engine have an interference engine! Your belt may slip or even split in half, no harm will be done to engine- valves will not be bent. Checked on my own experience 2x. If the timing belt slips, you may not be able to start you car , or it may work like machine gun(firing sounds)- very rough idle, not able to pick up speed e.t.c (depends on how many ''teeth'' of timing belt have slipped).
