96 and new vehicles use air idle control valve, idle air control sensor, or something to the nature

Yes. Pretty much any vehicle with an electronically controlled engine does.

The speedometer, Odometer and tripminder are all controlled by the VSS(Vehicle Speed Sensor) located in the bottom part under the vehicle engine.

No, that is why there is a gearbox

it does it by comparing engine speed to air flow , throttle position , and vehicle speed

The aeroplane takeoff is controlled by the engine speed and the elevators.

The vehicle speed sensor is between the transmission and the engine from the front of the the engine bay, there is also a vehicle wheel speed sensors in in each tire

Add a governor to limit the speed of the engine or vehicle.

there i no cable it is controlled by the vss{vhecile speed sensor} speedomoder is controlled by the vs or vehicle speed sensor

To match a constant speed engine with a variable speed vehicle.

The idle control valve works by regulating the idle speed of the engine. The idle speed of the engine is usually controlled by the engine of the computer.

If you are asking about maximum vehicle speed, that is set by the engine computer. A Sprinter dealer can set it with there scan tool.If you are asking about maximum vehicle speed, that is set by the engine computer. A Sprinter dealer can set it with there scan tool.

It means some one has programmed a speed limit in the vehicle. If the vehicle exceeds the preset speed it will warn you to reduce speed.

the vehicle speed sensor is on the tranny it hooks onto your speedometer. the engine speed sensor is on the front of the engine, two different sensors guys.

An engine, by itself, does not have a speed. It is a power unit. The speed of the vehicle it drives depends on many things such as; the transmission ratios the weight of the vehicle the terrain the set up and servicing of the engine the fuel used

The average speed of a radio controlled vehicle varies greatly by the type of radio control vehicle, brand, and frequency of the radio control. It can be super slow or can go super fast.

To limit the speed at which the vehicle can be driven.

Speed is computer controlled and there is no governor that you can remove.

It's an electronically controlled engine, and the speed governor is programmed into the ECM.

A smaller number as a gear ratio means more speed. Higher ratios have higher torque and less speed. The size of the engine just determines hp and tq for that engine unless it is upgraded. The gear ratio and engine determine the vehicles top speed and acceleration. More torque means more power therefore more acceleration.

A Governor on any vehicle is a speed limiting device used to keep the engine from going above a certain speed or engine RPM. Typically it is a device used to keep the throttle from fully opening either a set screw for the most simple or it can be far more complicated and be computer controlled.

It does not have a cable. It is controlled by the speed sensor.The vehicle speed sensor ( VSS ) provides information to the ( PCM ) Power train controll module to indicate vehicle speed. Check VSS.

Idle speed is automaticaly controlled by the computer. If idle speed is not correct, the car has a vacuum leak or a sensor problem.

You cannot remove what is does not have. There is no governor on the vehicle. The engine revolutions and speed are controlled by the ECU and you cannot remove that nor reprogram it unless you are a techno whiz.
