What causes the car to hesitate when accelerating at speeds below 20mph?
Bad speed sensors can cause the car to hesitate when accelerating at speeds below 20 mph. The blockage of the air filters can also cause the car to hesitate when accelerating at speeds below 20 mph.
By changing direction. Acceleration is a change in velocity. Since velocity takes direction into account, while speed does not, an object can having a changing velocity even while its speed remains the same. And while that object is changing its velocity by changing its direction, it is accelerating, regardless of its speed remaining constant. For example, if a car is driving north at constant speed of 20mph, its speed is 20mph, while its velocity is…
Honda prelude 2.2 it has lost all power at lower speeds its almost choking at 20mph but at high speeds seems fine?
Depending on the type of residential area, speeds can vary -- either 15mph, 20mph, 25mph, to 35mph. For example, in a small town, a side street is posted at 20mph. Four blocks away is a county maintained road with a solid double line posted as 35mph. Get to know how road markings affect speed limits.
Yes in a form. It can not be literaly -20mph but in deceleration it is. when you slow down a car to a stop that is negative volocity. and volacity is speed+direction. ex: 30mph east. so if your travaling 20mph west then slow to a stop it changes to -20mph west. (until you start going east) but because volacity is a messure of speed then yes it is possible. but not like when approching the…
When my 1998 Kia did this, it was the wheel bearings, inner and outer. Your local car repair shop should be able to check it out for you by putting it on a lift - usually at no cost to you. I am very curious about that also, i have a 2000 or 2001 kia sportage, but it vibrates starting at 60 mph, usually on the interstate.
Do manual transmission cars get better gas mileage when driven at low speeds in a high gear or a low gear?
Not sure when you say low speed. Not knowing what your driveline ratio is I will just use some basic numbers .If 20 MPH is your speed and you were in first gear your engine RPM's would be 3000, if you were in second gear at 20MPH your engine RPM's would be 2500 , if you were in third gear at 20MPH your engine RPM's would be 2000. A difference of 1000 RPM's from low…
How far can you drive on dry-rotted tires and Is it safe to drive a car with dry-rotted tires 35 miles if you go slow?
Depends on the engine, on the XUD (1.9 non turbo) the most economical point to change gear is when the speed is 10mph less than the gear number (eg. change to 3rd at 20mph) but for better acceleration changing at the same value (3rd at 30 etc.) will get the car moving quicker. There's no "official" details on this, so the best way is to see what works for you.
