Spinning Wheels

I have a banner, and on this banner there are three wheels which spin continuously by way of motion tweens.

What I want to do is have them stop spinning for a few seconds and then continue spinning, this process will be repeated every time.

So my question is: How would I accomplish this?

I know I could just add a bunch of frames to stop the wheels from spinning, but I was wondering if there’s a script that will do this without having to add frames.

Thanks in advance for any help.

if you have a button you could add this code to it:

on (rollOver) {
on (rollOut) {

if your animation is on the main time line, just replace ‘yourMovieClip’ with _root.

or you could use setIntervals. Seach the forums and tutorials for setIntervals.
