I have not had experience with fuel injected vehicles, assuming yours is, but I have experienced such a thing on many occasions with carburated vehicles. On such, plugged jets in the carburetor actually cause the vehicle to shudder when under load. If the vehicle is fuel injected and hasen't been serviced recently you may want to have this checked out.

Another AnswerIf an automatic vehicle and feels like you're driving over a cattle guard, good chance it's the torque converter that's going out. If so, it doesn't happen so much if you take off from a stop and continue a constant and somewhat aggressive acceleration. It also happens every time if going through a school zone at 35ish for a while, then trying to speed up. That's a torque converter unable to lock up. When you feel it, back off the gas! If that torque converter does come apart inside, your car is going nowhere.

What causes 2001 ford van to shudder when excelerating?

GENERALLY, WHEN A FRONT WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE SHUDDERS WHEN YOU ARE ACCELERATING, IT IS ONE OF THE INSIDE CV JOINTS THAT IS OUT. THERE ARE DRIVE SHAFTS THAT COME OUT OF THE TRANSMISSION, AND THEY HAVE BOOTS ON THE INSIDE CLOSE TO THE TRANSMISSION, AND BOOTS ON THE OUTSIDE CLOSE TO THE WHEELS. THE INSIDE BOOTS AND JOINTS TEND TO SHUDDER UPON ACCELERATION WHEN THEY ARE OUT. HOPE THIS HELPS.


How does centripetal acceleration depend upon the object's speed and the radius of the circle?

You've conflated your cause and your effect. The object's speed and the curvature of its path are determined by the centripetal acceleration.


Transmission stumbles upon acceleration between 2nd and 3rd gear?

A transmission that stumble upon acceleration between 2nd and 3rd gear may need to be flushed. Another possible cause is that the torque converter is locking when shifting between gears.

Turbo lagging. Remove Inlet tube and check that it spins exceptionally freely,and also check that the wastegate and linkage moves freely.

The force acting upon an object the greater the acceleration of the object?

The larger the force acting upon an object, the greater the acceleration of the object.


Second law of newton?

The second law states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables - the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object. The acceleration of an object depends directly upon the net force acting upon the object, and inversely upon the mass of the object. As the force acting upon an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is increased. As the mass of an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is decreased. To put it as it is often put: Force equals mass times acceleration (F = ma): the net force on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by its acceleration.

Does an object have no forces acting upon it if there is no acceleration?

Yes.


How does Newton's second law explain why it is easier to push a bicycle than to push a car with the same acceleration?

The second law states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables - the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object. The acceleration of an object depends directly upon the net force acting upon the object, and inversely upon the mass of the object. As the force acting upon an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is increased. As the mass of an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is decreased.Since a bicycle has much less mass than a car so it's easier to push it.


When acceleration upward or downward direction is taken positivw or negative?

If it is gravitational acceleration then it it is positive in downward and negative in upward direction..if it is not gravitational acceleration then it is depending upon the value of acceleration.


Infer whether balanced forces must be acting on a car moving at a constant speed?

The friction force acting upon the turned wheels of the car cause an unbalanced force upon the car and a subsequent acceleration.


What is the force acting upon an object the greater the acceleration of the object?

The greater the acceleration of the object the larger the force that is acting upon an object. This can be proven by Newton's second law.


If the force acting upon an object is increased what happens to the objects acceleration?

In that case, the acceleration will also increase.


What effect does a quadrupling of the mass have upon the acceleration of the object?

If the same force was applied, then the acceleration would be quartered.


Your 2000 Toyota RAV4 has very little pickup and the engine knocks upon acceleration what could be causing this problem?

Timing is probably off.


What do unbalanced forces cause a change in?

If a force is unbalanced, it will cause an acceleration upon the object which it is acting. The magnitude of this acceleration can be calculated by dividing the Net Resultant Force by the mass of the object. This comes from Newton's Second Law of Motion, which gives us the equation F=ma, which can be rearranged into F/m=a.


Is force based upon both mass and acceleration?

Yes, Force is mass times acceleration. F = m • a


What is the acceleration of a mass of 6kg acted upon by a force of 6N?

The acceleration is one meter per second squared.


What does the direction of acceleration depend upon?

The direction of acceleration is the cumulative total result of all the forces acting on an object.


Can gravitational acceleration be reduced artificially?

No. Gravitational Acceleration is a constant and is a function of mass. The effects of the constant upon another mass can be altered but the acceleration itself will remain the same.


What is the Ticking sound upon acceleration and idle in my 2005 Toyota Corolla?

Ticking on acceleration is usually the ignition timing, get it tuned..


Is it possible that acceleration at an instant does not depends upon its velocity at that instant?

Acceleration never depends on the instantaneous velocity.Acceleration is the rate at which velocity is changing, and the direction of the change.A car leaving a STOP sign at a neighborhood intersection, and the Space Shuttle in theprocess of a delicate orbital maneuver to link up with the International Space Station,could very well have the same acceleration.
