Why would a 1999 Ford F150 V6 have sluggish acceleration only below 35MPH?

Take to Autozone and ask them to do an OBD-2 check. Can be air mass flow sensor, dirty injectors caused by dirty fuel filter, etc.

It could be your MAF sensor. Mass air flow sensor that measures the air going into the intake. This could likely cause sluggish acceleration.

The bus was sluggish on the way to school

Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.

2nd gear. (the gear you would use from about 15-35mph)

User Avatar

it would take 2 hours, assuming that you start and finish at 35mph. However as you start at 0mph and have to accelerate to 35mph, it will take slightly longer

Sluggish or lagging would do

User Avatar

i would say average would be 25-30mph your fastest skaters maybe 35mph

User Avatar

velocity is speed with a direction. speed would be like 35mph. velocity would be like 35 mph south

Could be a clogged catalytic converter, if you are also getting wose gas mileage, and it sort of smells like raw eggs. Otherwise, I would get a fuel injector cleaning, and try switching to a better octane at the pump.

on the moon, which object would fall with the same acceleration

User Avatar

See if your drive shaft going to front end is bent.

User Avatar

I have the same issue. I would look at the over drive sensor/module as the culprit

User Avatar

Acceleration is the change in velocity of an object. If an object is travelling at an unchanging speed, its speed is neither increasing (which would make a positive acceleration) nor decreasing (which would make a negative acceleration). Thus, the acceleration is 0.

Force = Mass X Acceleration, so 10 = 1 X A, so the acceleration is 10The acceleration would be 10 m/s2

User Avatar

I think it would be the acceleration of gravity 9.81 m/s^2...

User Avatar

Without an increase in mass the acceleration would decrease

User Avatar

That would be "Deceleration" or negative acceleration.

User Avatar

well it does depend on how much you weigh if you are a child then you both would have the same acceleration but if you are an adult then the child would have no acceleration. O: i am so smart.

Plugged fuel and or air filters can affect performance.

Newton taught everybody that Net Force = Mass * Acceleration. Since we're talking about acceleration, we can rearrange that to be Acceleration = Net Force / Mass. If you want to decrease the acceleration of an object, you would need to decrease the net force applied to it or increase its mass (or both).
