it depends on what car and engine. it could be your fuel filter, or a vacuum leak. your converter might be pluged also. these are some things to check out about the problem.

A car goes faster when you accelerate. It slows down when you brake.

what would cause my car to run fine when it has first started up then after a while first gear will kinda bog down.

· When you are in a car and push down the pedal, the car will accelerate.

Three ways an object can accelerate is speeding up,slowing down, and changing direction.

Sort of. If you slam on the brakes of your car, the car slows down. But in the coordinate system of the things inside the car, you appear to accelerate out of your seat and through the windscreen.

Accelerate - gravity will always try to pull the car downhill.

There are several reasons why a car will start and then bog down when the accelerator is pushed. Some of the reasons could be plugs, fuel pump, or the catalytic converter.

It does not always mean that will happen, but it is certainly a common cause and if your car is sputtering and bogs down it would be one of the first things to check.

no the car must use its brakes to slow down when it goes around a corner

No , absolutely not ( if you hit a puddle , which will slow the car down , the cruise control willtry to accelerate the car to maintain the set speed )It's not recommended to use the cruise control in the rain. Normally, you use the cruise control on the highways. When it's raining you need complete control on the car and be fully alert.( NO ) if you hit a puddle that slows the car down then the cruise control will accelerate the carbetter not it could cause the car to accelerate at the wrong time and cause loss of control

Hesitation during acceleration on a 1999 Rodeo means that when the gas pedal is pushed down, the car does not immediately accelerate. It may take a second or two for the car to accelerate in this situation.

I would check your tires they could be out of balance. or a tire could be bad .

Because its trying to get to 88 mph so you can stop justin beiber from being born HURRY YOUR ARE LAST HOPE

The reason that he chevy truck may continue to bog down, is due to the car needing to warm up before starting. There may also be an issue with the fuel pump.

drop down a 89 degree slope, that way it will accelerate at the speed of gravity

Your car should not smoke when I accelerate. Maybe it caught fire because you dropped a cigarette. If my car smokes when I accelerate, it's because the piston rings are loose and oil is getting into the combustion chamber.

Less weight to move and no wind resistance since no atmosphere.

Because that's the definition of "accelerate". "Accelerate" doesn't mean "speed up", although that's how everybody who rides in a car uses the word. "Accelerate" means "change the speed or the direction of motion, or both".

yes This is because of the fact that gravity is a measure of acceleration. The longer the car has to accelerate the faster is will be by the end.

Because the high rpms of the car keep the motor spinning fast so that it is not acting like a compression brake, slowing your car down.
