Best Answer

Possibly dirty accelerator linkage or sticking throttle body butterfly. Clean all the linkage and the inside of the throttle body, paying close attention to the butterly. Use only a spray cleaner that is safe to use with emissions sensors. Do not use a product such as WD40.

How do particle accelerators help in performing artificial transmutations?

Sometimes artificial transmutations will not occur unless bombarding particles are moving at extremely high speeds, and since a particle accelerator can accelerate a particles speed very close to the speed of light, then you would have to use a particle accelerator to make the transmutation happen.

When a river floods would its water flow faster or slower than its normal speed?

When a river floods it water will flow faster then the normal speed.

What is the fastest ever man made thing?

Satellites rotate around the earth at a high rate of speed. The fastest object we have created would be the particle accelerator.

How do you control speed or stop a vehicle which runs with cryogenic engine?

Such a vehicle does not exist. However should one be built (unlikely) it would need to have a speed control (accelerator) and means of stopping (brakes) incorporated as with all vehicles.

How far back in time would you go if you traveled the speed of light?

To an outside observer a person traveling at the speed of light would be frozen in time. To the person traveling at the speed of light, things would seem normal.

How long would it take to walk quarter of a mile normal speed?

It depends on the length of your legs and what you'd consider normal speed, but it should be between 5 to 7 minutes.

Why would a linear accelerator have no effect on a neutron?

A linear accelerator works by having a magnet at the end of the accelerator. If the particle is neutral then it will not be attracted to the magnet and therefore nothing will happen, as in the case of a neutron.

What is the average speed of a normal car?

I would say 110 mph but that is only an estimate.

Why would a 1993 Ford Tempo die down and eventually cut off when stopped or in park unless you press on the accelerator?

The idling speed could be set too low.

Why would Oil pressure drop when you let up on the accelerator of a 94 Thunderbird?

If by letting up on the accelerator you mean not hitting the gas pedal then it's normal your not increasing rpm that being said oil isn't being pumped through as fast as it would when hitting the gas so less oil being pumped through less oil pressure it's normal now if it's like dropping to zero there is a problem...

Would a steering wheel be classified as an accelerator?


Why would a car not get pickup while pressing the accelerator?

There are several possibilities: a clogged fuel line or fuel filter, a malfunctioning fuel pump, or a problem with the clutch and/or transmission that prevents a higher engine speed from causing increased wheel speed.

What would happen if you pressed the brake and accelerator in a car?

you would spin in a circle

How many brushes would a single speed motor require?

The normal number of brushes is 2.

What would you see if you stepped on a scale while traveling at 86 percent the speed of light?

You would be much heavier than normal. The mass of any object increases as its speed goes up.

If you are riding a bike for about 8.7 miles then how long would a trip take at a normal speed?

about 2 hours

If you are riding a bike for 6 miles then how long would a trip take at a normal speed?

24 minutes

Why do you use variable speed drives in electrical engineering?

the same reason you have an accelerator pedal on a car there are many motors that are fixed speed clocks pumps fans most of the reasons are mechanical a conveyer belt with a pallete of stacked things on it would fall with on off control

What would cause a 1996 Dodge Ram transmission to hesitate shifting into 3rd gear unless you let off the accelerator?

those had a problem with a vehicle speed sensor but your throttle position sensor can do it too

Why would a 1999 Sable GS sometimes lose acceleration and the accelerator pedal be hard to press?

replace the fuel filter and the accelerator cable to the throtle body

How long does it take to drive 465 miles?

depends how fast your going normal speed would take hours

How fast are meerkats?

The relative speed of a meerkat depends on its species. If you are dealing with the mutant radioactive meerkat, its normal speed would be found around 2,450mph. If you are studying the giant fang-toothed meerkat, you would rather not measure its speed... unless you have a death wish.

Why would a car pull the accelerator to the floor on its own?

the return spring is weak.

What causes excessive RPM when you please the accelerator?

If its manual that would be the cltuch slipping.

What should you do in case of a tire blowout?

Gradually release the accelerator, bringing down the speed of your vehicle and maneuver your wheel to keep control and steer towards where you would like to go also never slam on the brakes worst thing you can do and never completely release the accelerator then once you made your stop to where you are safe out of traffic obviously go get yourself some help.
