Why is it important to set the parking brake when parked on a steep hill?
To avoid the car from rolling forward.
Why does your 2000 Passat slowly move while parked on a slight incline in gear with the parking brake engaged?
Because all cars do this. You need your parking brakes adjusted so it won't move even on a steep hill.
Can a parked car with an automatic transmission slip out of gear if the car is parked on a steep hill?
It could slip out of park, but most likely would "park lock." This would mean the parking pawl would jam inside other parts in the transmission, making it tough to get your car out of park. Sometimes pushing the car is the only way. Use the parking brake on a hill.
Why would a 2000 corvette 6 speed turn slowly on a steep grade in first gear with 170-180 psi compression and the clutch is holding firm?
The parking brake on the C5 Vetts are a weak spot in the car. I hope you are at least using the parking brake when parking on a steep grade!
It is normal for the car to move a little before the parking mechanism engauges.
no my friends car rolled down the drive into the middle of the road with the hand brake on the snow and ice just helped it to slide down
If you are parked on a steep hill or the front wheels are parked hard up against a curb it may cause that to happen. It may take some force to get it out of park. If that fails to work, check for a blown fuse.
When parking downhill on a steep road should you turn your wheels towards the kerb or away from the kerb?
Wheels toward the curb. What is a Kerb? ^^^ You aim the wheels toward the curb so that if your parking brake fails, the vehicle won't roll into traffic. It will roll into the curb and be stopped
The handbrake is used to stop a stationary car rolling downhill. The transmission can also stop a car from moving when parked.
try releasing the brake This happened to me, too, after I used the brake (which I don't do often, but I was parked on a steep hill). I assumed e-brake cable or something was simply stuck. In other words, I wasn't too concerned. Turns out the brake light was on because my brakes desperately needed to be replaced. Once I did that, the light went out. So in my case it was just a coincidence… Read More
This is completely dependent on the space you parked in and the cars around you. OPTIONAL: If the hill is steep you will need to make sure that your car does not roll forward unintentionally by... 1. Applying pressure on the brake with your left foot if your car has an automatic transmission. 2. Applying brake pressure with the emergency brake if you car has a manual transmission. For parallel parking... 1. If there is… Read More
Stationary is an adjective: 'I parked my car on a steep hill and made sure that it was stationary before I walked away.'
Is The weight of the vehicle on the road surface is the reason that your car remains stationary when parked even on a steep hill?
Friction of the tires on the road surface ( I think so)
You should brake at the top of the hill and slow down to a speed where you can change down to the next lowest gear. Anticipation is most important, as you may need to change down again to the next lowest gear. Engine braking helps to prevent overheating the brakes, and also assists vehicle stability on steep hills.
Try putting on the emergency brake & turning the wheels one way while turning the key. If that dont work try turning the wheels the other way..if your parked on a steep hill you might even have to put a brick in front of the tires and let it roll a bit to remove some pressure from the wheels............hope it works
Steep downgrades, when you need it to control your descent.
Friction between the brake pads and the wheel drum causes the build up of heat in the braking system. Use a lower gear when descending a steep hill.
I could be your rotors are need to be reground. Let your brake man check out your brakes.
Beaches are important because most of California's steep shores have been formed by beach erosion.
One gear down from normal road gear, but remember the transmission is not meant to be a brake.
The coefficient of static friction between hard rubber and normal street pavement is about 0.8 On how steep a hill can you leave a car parked?
coefficient of friction = 0.8 tan theta use your calculator : 2nd tan ( 0.8) = 38.66 degrees
Just came from a mechanic. Check to see if you have a bad ignition cyliner. This may help. must brake, going up / down steep hill too quickly
The emergency brake dates back to somewhere near 1904. (That's an estimate. My grandmother's family bought cars frequently and mentioned that as the first one with an emergency brake.) The early braking systems were push-rod linkages under the vehicle and prone to failure when struck by debris. A cable drawn brake actuator was a suitable backup device for emergency use, although never efficient or durable enough for standard service. They became mandatory in the 1920's… Read More
Commonly brakes crack because they have been overheated and/or gotten very hot then been put under water. Down a steep hill into a creek will do it.
Car Stuck in Park Check Stop lights--if they are not working vehicle will not shift out of "park" check fuse Here are opinions and answers from FAQ Farmers: Check under the shifting mechanism for loose change or other small items that might have gotten stuck between the gears and baseplate. Fixing this only costs time. You may have a safety switch where you have to press the brake it may have gone bad or your… Read More
the slave on this truck has no bleeder, you simply need to pump the pedal about 500 times until you get some clutch movment. Then i recomend parking the truck on a steep grade and pump some more.

One important thing that Michael Jordan did was to restore popularity to professional basketball. It had suffered a steep decline in viewership before he came on the scene.
Steep as a verb: dunk, soak. Steep as an adjective: high, bold.
You don't want to know. i got one from one of the cameras (Inland Empire) & was over 400.00 1st offense. Varies with city, I'm sure, but they are all steep. A parking ticket is 60.00 now.

You can tell if a landform has a steep or gentle slope by looking at it. If the hill is small, it is not steep. A steep slope would be at more of an incline.
That asking price seems rather steep. Put your car into a lower gear to drive down a long, steep hill. Let the tea steep for several minutes.
Steep has a couple of definitions. A hill is steep when it has a pronounced incline. Steep also means to soak in liquid to extract flavor or to soften. When we steep tea in a tea pot, we take the infusor, which is full of the tea leaves, and put it into the hot water. It will steep there for several minutes to permit the water to extract the flavor from the tea so we… Read More

When the car is traveling downhill it is being helped by gravity. If it is a steep downhill, you need no gas at all - you need a lower gear and a bit of brake, gravity helps so much.
It could be air in the brake line, or the brakes getting too hot from too much friction by using the brakes on a steep hill or riding the brakes, or there could be a problem with the master cylinder.
For a slope, the opposite of steep would be gentle, or gradual. For a cost, the opposite could be reasonable or low. Steep has a couple of definitions.
