Usually vehicle just stops running with no warning

Hold down the clutch when sitting still or going too slow for that gear.

if the vehicle is running properly(regular maintanance, tune-ups etc..), you have to downshift on inclines if your vehicle is standard shift. if automatic, disengage overdrive while going up hills.

It's normal for a vehicle to drop out of overdrive when it's under a severe load like going up hill or a lot of weight in it. That helps the engine to maintain speed and keeps the transmission from running hot. The ECM moniters the actions of the car and driver inputs and makes a decision automatically.

You can take it down to a shop and get it tested, but if you can not afford that, you can take the negative battery cable off of the battery while the vehicle is running. If the vehicle dies, you may have a bad alternator.

Trained behavior is behavior that you train into your dog. Examples are sitting and waiting for their food instead of running to it as soon as you put it on the floor. Another trained behacior is a dof sitting and whining at the back door to go out and use the bathroom instead of going to the bathroom in the house.

Air resistance is also called drag on a vehicle. When the vehicle moves forward it must push the air molecules out of the way, this causes resistance or friction. The faster the vehicle is going, the faster it is pushing the air molecules out of the way causing greater resistance.

Because in the back seat you may not see where you are going and in the front you can so you may get motion sickness by not looking where you are going.

You could check the want ads in your local paper. Many people find running vehicles on sites such as Craig's List. Still more people find them sitting for sale in yards and at the sides of roads. You are probably going to have to pay cash. The likelihood of you getting a loan for a reasonable rate any time soon is limited.

There is no minimum speed, it has to do with the impact force. If you are sitting still and the impact from another vehicle hitting you is hard enough the airbags will go off.

what should you do when going down a steep grade in a heavy vehicle?

The one your sitting in right now.

It really depends on what you are doing. Something like running burns more calories than sitting at a desk will. This will help lower calories by jogging or going to the gym everyday

A clear sign is if your vehicle wont start without a boost, but fires up fine when boosted. Also dimming lights when vehicle is shut off or running, all signs you alternator is not charging your battery.

In order to jump start a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt, you are going to need a pair of jumper cables. You need to connect your car with a running vehicle.

User Avatar

Yes because if the car in front of you was going faster, the distance between the vehicle your in and the one in front of you would grow but, if the car was going slower than the speed your going, the vehicle will become closer. :)

Tap the block or head with a hammer while the vehicle is running. If the engine slows down as you are doing this, it is sensing "knock" and trying to compensate by retarding ignition timing.

In theory no. But take into consideration when the engine is not running you have no power assistance to the brakes or steering
