Review the data for the vehicle online at a free information site, like the troubleshooting at autozone's site, or buy a manual for your model to get the correct idle speed. Normally, adjusting idle speed correctly requires setting the car to a diagnostic mode. This is often done by shorting specific connectors on a diagnostic connector, ensuring the vehicle is warmed up, the AC is off, it is in Park, and all accessories are turned off. In diagnostic mode, you should be able to set the timing (using a light normally) by rotating the distributor (for cars with distributors only). While you are in that mode, you can also check the idle speed, and adjust if your idle control system allows adjustment. Many vehicles do not allow or make no provision for adjustment. While timing can affect idle, the statement "I think you should advance the timing by adjusting the distributer a little until the RPM goes to where you need it" is not accurate. Set the timing to the specified value, then adjust idle speed. Advancing timing too far causes increased NOx emissions and stress or pinging, (and more power, to a point), reducing it too far causes loss of power and can burn valves. If your idle is still not stable after setting it to the specified value, begin troubleshooting per normal techniques.. like, checking EGR, for vacuum leaks, ignition issues, fuel delivery, etc.

What is steady speed?

Steady speed is when you maintain the same speed level. E.G. using cruise control.



How is it possible for a car to be accelerating if its speed is a steady 65 mph?

The term accelerating means increasing in speed, so if a car holds its speed steady at 65 mph, it is not accelerating. It is still running its engine, to overcome air resistance and other forms of friction, but that is not the same thing as acceleration.


What is the acceleration of a car that is going at a steady speed of 74 mph?

If something is traveling at a "steady" speed, it can't be accelerating.

A condition where engine power fluctuates up and down?

Surging is the condition where the engine power fluctuates up and down with a continuous, soft jerking motion. When driving at a steady speed, the engine seems to speed up and slow down, without moving the accelerator.

What should you do if a driver is attempting to pass you?

Maintain the same steady speed you were driving at. You should NOT: increase your speed, change into the same lane. You SHOULD: yield the right-of-way.


Why is your 1996 Cadillac sedan deville making a backfire noise from the engine compartment while at a steady speed?

If a 1996 Cadillac Sedan DeVille is making a backfire noise from the engine compartment while at a steady speed, it is probably due to a bad oxygen sensor. The vehicle could also have one cylinder that is not firing or a problem with missing exhaust or the catalytic converter.


What is steady velocity?

Steady velocity means keeping the same speed. Like in "between the stations, the train maintained a steady velocity".


How can you get better gas milege?

Drive at a steady speed with no jackrabbit starts. Keep your tires properly inflated and maintain your engine. A vehicle with properly maintained engine and properly inflated tires requires only about 7% of the power to needed to achieve it to maintain a given speed.


Why you use throttle valve in steam engines?

Athrottle valve controls the flow of steam to the engine. Without throttling the steam the engine will simply run full speed and vary in speed as the load increases and decreases. The throttle valve maintains a steady speed by opening as the load increases and closing as the load decreases.


What is zero acceleration?

Why does a car need energy to move at a steady speed?

A car needs energy to move at a steady speed because it needs to equalize the force of air pressure by moving forward.
