There are just too many different variables at play here. Could even turn out to be the PCM itself. Take it to a tune-up shop for diagnosis.


vacuum lines


It could be the vacuum lines, or it could just be that its running too hot, the average temp for a v8 92 camaro is about 220, but when u change the thermostat, and rewire the fan so that its always on, it cruises at about 180, and u pick up about 15hp making up for that slugish acceleration and keeping a smooth cruise. try swaping the maf sensor the wire filament usually have fibers from cheap wet air filters interfere with the fuel mixture signal sent ftom mas air flow sensor g

If velocity is steady and doesn't change, then there is 0 acceleration.

Does steady force cause a steady acceleration?

A steady increase in force will result in a steady acceleration, however if thesteady force stays the same then the speed will obviously remain the same.=====================================HONK ! Beulah the Buzzer is agitated and rankled by that answer, mainly becauseeach of its statements is individually and so thoroughly wrong.The formula that relates force and acceleration could hardly be any simpler . . .F = M ATo answer this question, let's first divide both sides by M . . . A = F/M .and there you have it. Acceleration is equal to (Force) divided by (Mass). As long as the force and the mass don't change, acceleration is a constant.In the words of the question, "steady force" causes a "steady acceleration".

What is the acceleration of a carthat moves at a steady velocity of 100 km an hour for 100 seconds?

Zero. Anything that moves at a steady velocity has no acceleration by definition, because acceleration is defined as rate of change in velocity.

What is zero acceleration?

check my answer Holding a steady speed.

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.

What is the acceleration of a car that moves at a steady velocity of 100km h for 100 seconds?

0 It is not accelerating at all since the velocity is steady.

What is acceleration of a Car that is going at a steady speed of 50 mph?

Zero. Acceleration = change in velocity/change in time As you see the conditions are not met for acceleration to be taking place.

What is acceleration of a car that is going at a steady speed of 60 mph?

0 Zero

What is the acceleration of a car traveling from 0 to 60 miles in 4 seconds?

There is no acceleration if the car is travelling at a steady 54,000 miles per hour.

Why do electrons acquire steady drift velocity?

Electrons acquire steady velocity because the acceleration acquired is lost in collisions with positive ions of the metals.

What is meant by motion undergoing constant acceleration?

An object that is speeding up at a steady rate.

If you walk in a striaght path at a steady rate what is your acceleration?

0 m/s^2 (zero acceleration) since there is no change in direction and speed is constant.

Is acceleration is possible during steady flow?

the term steady implies no change at a point in time, however particle speed can change from point to point. ie, water novel, steady flow with increase in velocity

Can you conclude that a car is not accelerating if its speedometer indicates a steady 60kmh?

No itÕs not. Acceleration only occurs when there is a change in velocity with time but since the velocity is constant there is no acceleration.

Give five examples of uniform motion?

Five examples of uniform motion are: A car going along a straight level road at steady speed An aircraft cruising at a level height and a steady speed A ship steaming on a straight course at steady speed A train going along the tracks at steady speed A cooling fan running at a fixed speed

What is the acceleration of a car that moves at a steady velocity of 100 kmh for 100 seconds Explain your answer and state why this question is an exercise in careful reading as well as in physics?

Acceleration = 0 because the car is moving at a STEADY velocity. It is neither speeding up, nor slowing down.

A horizontal line on an acceleration graph would indicate?

-- constant acceleration -- speed increasing at a steady rate -- distance increasing as the square of the time since everything started

What is the acceleration of a car that is going at a steady speed of 60 mph?

At a constant speed there is no acceleration. Acceleration describes a positive change in speed meaning to go faster. Deacceleration describes how fast something is slowing down. But at a constant speed of 60mph there is acceleration or deacceleration.

Can an object be increasing in speed as its acceleration decreases?

Yes. Even though the acceleration rate is decreasing, it is still accelerating but at a lower (or slower?) rate. When acceleration rate reaches 0, the speed stops increasing and remains steady.

What is the meaning of acceleration?

Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity. When at a steady speed, there is no rate of change of velocity and therefore acceleration is zero. When the rate of change of speed is positive, such as a car speeding up, acceleration is positive. If the rate of change of speed is negative, such as a driver applying the brakes, there is negative acceleration, or deceleration.

The constant velocity of a falling object?

A falling object doesn't have constant velocity.It has constant acceleration. That means that its velocity increases at a steady (constant) rate.The rate is called the "acceleration of gravity".

How can you tell from a velocity time graph that your motion is steady?

IF the curve got is a straight line parallel to time axis then the motion is steady. ie with uniform velocity. If it is a straight line inclined with the time axis then it is uniformly accelerated. So it is also a steady state with uniform acceleration.

Added info to question: Vacuum also coincidently went from steady 20psi to 15psi/knock - small backfire/miss on acceleration from idle. Knock is steady at idle.
