clear as mudpullies are normally attached to an engines crank either by being directly bolted to the nose of the crank which has a taper machined into it and is retained by the pressure exerted by the attaching bolt which screws into the nose of the crank. The other method is to fit the pulley over the crank nose which has a valley or keyway machined along about an inch or so along the length of the nose and then place the pully onto the crank nose and line up a corresponding machined keyway in the pully and insert a metal key into the space created by the keyways. pullies will remain stationary if a key fails or is sheared,or if the pully bolt has fallen out and the pully has become loose on a tapered crank or the other cause is when the rubber dampener which circles the mid section of the pulley perishes thru from contamination by fuel and oil etc the crank continues to rotate with affecting the pulley. so there,it is ,clear as mud. razmo

ANS 2 -If this pulley is not moving, the crankshaft is not turning.

Yes, if you're trying to interfere with them repossesing it.

you need to tighten your fan belt as it is moving and now slipping on the A/C pulley that you just turned on.

Ii would depend on how fast the car was moving by in all likelihood, yes.

A crank pulley also known as a crankshaft pulley is an essential part of a car. It transmits the mechanical power and torque, or the force of motion, through the pulley system to additional car elements.

Either the thermostat is stuck in an almost closed position and there is not enough flow of coolant through the engine block or you have a lazy water pump over time the impeller of the water pump wears out causing low coolant flow, so when the car is moving the water pump spins faster letting enough flow through the block.

The idler pulley has nothing to do with the brakes. If the idler pulley is bad it could throw or break a belt, and then your engine will stop.

A block heater is a device one would use to heat the engine of a car in extremely cold weather. The block heater can be mains generated or will run on the fuel source of your vehicle.

Which pulley are you referring to. There is 5 or 6 on that car.

Yes. I have had to replace tensioners for this reason.

The forward momentum of the car would still push you forward, and you would be dragged on the ground for some time. But if you really want to know for sure, try it. You'll find out pretty quickly why it's not a good thing. With all that said, never, even if a car is moving slowly walk out of a moving car.

cam positioning sensor is on the front of the block, directly above the bottom pulley wheel this is accessed the easiest from underneath the car

It has the car belt wrapped around it, on the end of the car shaft.

Without traffic and assuming the car is moving at constant speed, this question cannot be answered without knowing the rate the car is traveling at. You would divide the distance by the speed the car is moving at to find the time.

User Avatar

it depends. if the car isn't moving, but the engine is still on, then yes the pistons are moving. if the engine is off, and the car isn't moving, then the pistons are still.

what direction the car was moving

A pulley can be seen in the Gym. A pulley can be seen on the well - which is used to draw water. A pulley can sometimes be seen on the elevator, which is used to pull the car.

The pulley turns the belt that goes around it to turn another pulley that might turn the water pump, or alt. or a/c.

Do you mean where on a car is a block heater install or who do you take the car to to install?

A moving car can have potential energy. It can be on a hill or a rise. This would give it gravitational potential energy. It can have gasoline, a battery with charge or both. This would give it chemical potential energy.

User Avatar

most likely if you are moving fast you will role the opposite direction that the car is moving. but the best bet is to never jump out of a moving car.

With no engine or form of another form of propulsion the car would not move.

A good reason TO use a moving car as a reference point would be, in good driving conditions it is recommended to stay at least two seconds behind the moving car ahead of you.
