        Never said that. Just a common example of a fuel-injected engine I happen to know about for which pressing the accelerator pedal is the standard procedure.

        Or clear the cylinders of fuel as it says in the pic. A lot of vehicles do that.

        Stomping it a couple times (with key off) is a trope from carburetors, is the point. Doing it in a fuel injected car just opens and closes the intake

          this trope seems to be rooted in reality with early EFI cars. Usually the cars depicted in these scenarios are older, and often appear to be heavily neglected. Early EFI cars rely on a bunch of tricks at start up to work properly, especially the mechanical/vacuum advanced ones.

          Fast idle circuits controlled by heater elements and a wax filled plunger body that often fail closed preventing the idle valve from opening were common in the late 70's through mid 80's. Fuel Pressure idle up solenoids that pull on a dash-pot on the FPR, that often will fail. Cracking the throttle manually will often let you emulate the function of the fast idle valve, and allow the lack of vaccum differential to richen up the start condition on the mechanical FPR's for cars that used fuel pressure changes in addition to duty cycle. Pumping it a few times as you are actively cranking can help.

          I feel like you have not experienced early EFI.

    Yes I understand there needs to be a challenging situation, some form of danger, etc. to help continue this development. But Jesus fricking Christ can someone use their fricking imagination?

      But there are many examples of that happening in the real world, at least on busy rail lines. It's going to be pretty rare in the middle of nowhere but trucks get stuck on railroad crossings all the time.

    how about just any interior car scene where you can tell they're just sitting behind car parts infront of some shitty screen projection it's always so obvious kinda ruins the movie

    the trope of the car not turning over could be used for a car ad honestly. At the point where the protagonist would try to start the car, it actually starts first time without a hitch, then as the car is seen peeling away, on-screen text fades in saying something about this particular model never being used in a horror movie

      They're suppressors

        Yes I'm aware, my dad was an SOT and i spent plenty of time around quite a few. Remember the phrase "suppressors don't make a gun quiet - they just make them less loud."
        They don't drop them down to below a whisper, they just reduce muzzle note but 10-20dB, sometimes 30dB at absolute BEST without some clever gunsmithing and subsonic ammo, which doesn't really go far when gunfire is in the 140-170dB range
        And theres more to consider than just the blast. For example the piston pop of an AK is 135dB by itself - sound which projected through the bolt rather than the muzzle - which is about the level of sound projected out of speakers at a concert. Another common example would be a Glock 19 which is about 165-170dB, only drops to about 140-150dB when suppressed

          Here's a good example of what's possible with a special ported barrel and hand loaded subsonic, which is what movies make them out to be defacto. It's effectively a modern-day DeLisle
