Dirty linkages at the carb/fuel injector, linkages being the throttle cable. Cable could be crimped or bent or misrouted causing it to kink slightly. Possible replacement of a return spring.

Option 2

Sometime you can get a bad enough carbon build-up in your throttle body causing the butterfly to stick. especially if your revving kind of high and quick let your foot off the gas, it flings back and gets stuck in the sticky carbon. Either go to a auto store and get carb/throttle body spray or go to your local shop and get an injection cleaning done..

Well the vehicle is backfiring which can be caused by bad gas, spark plugs, or just needs some carburetor service.

you may have a stopped up fuel filter. or the idle needs readjusting

most likely a cooling fan for the engine or tranny, but I've seen ECUs hum intermittently when vehicle is off.

The unsupported matter inside the vehicle will accelerate to the direction of the previous movement of the vehicle before it stopped.

only from a stopped position. Do not try and do it on the fly. Not designed to do that.

Suppose you accelerate in your car from stopped to 50 When you were stopped your instantaneous speed was zero. At the end of the period of acceleration your instantaneous speed was 50 If your rate of acceleration was constant then your average speed was 25

Probably idle control sosonoid located on the throtle body. Take it off and clean it and where it mounts. Also cleqan the inside of the throtle body where the throtle plate is as a carrbon ring forms there.

The turning wheels act as a gyroscope to keep the position constant (upright).

Depends on the acceleration of the car- how fast it is moving. No one answer.

I think he does. In Halloween II his sister called him by his name he stopped tilted his head and hesitated before re-attempting to kill her. In Halloween 5 when his niece climbs into a coffin and he had the perfect opportunity to kill her then & there but she called him uncle and again he stopped & hesitated then began crying

depends is it automatic or manual? if its automatic its more than likely that your transmission isn't shifting into first gear

This technique is used when you're at an intersection with stopped traffic. When the car in front of you begins to accelerate, count to 3. Once you hit three, move on! This ensures sufficient distance.

That'll be the carrier bearing. This happened with my Audi A6 quattro. On my model, it was more cost effective to replace the entire driveshaft than to pay for the labor to replace just the bearing.

As the swing moves, potential energy changes into kinetic energy. At the highest position all energy is gravitational potential energy as the swing has stopped at its highest position. Then the energy is converted back to kinetic energy, KE as it descends.
