Why would a 92 Skylark make loud noises and stall when stopping quickly from speeds over 50 MPH.?

Bad torque converter. They lock when you go at highway speeds, to improve efficency. If they don't disengage properly, the car will stall when you stop. Could be a bad solenoid (switch). Can be fixed or bypassed. If bypassed, you save the cost of a repair, but will lose highway efficency.

Why would your 94 stall for no reason?

The first thing I would try would be cleaning the throttle body with some carb and choke cleaner. When they get really dirty it can cause you to stall at slow speeds. On my 93 there is a Crank Shaft Position sensor. Mine started to melt and the jeep stalled at weired times for a week. If your jeep has a lock up solenoid in your tranny and its stuck on, then you will stall at stops Not sure about a 94, but my 2000 would stall while driving at highway speeds. Dealer replaced the oxygen sensor and it fixed the problem.

What are the possible causes for 1994 Buick Century stalling when slowing down to a stop when being driven on the highway at highway speeds?

Still having the problem? This happened to my brothers 91 Skylark...He would come off of the highway and when pulling up to a stop sign or signal light, it would stall...Putting it in park it would start right up again...Then into drive and it would stall unless he gave it lots of gas then sometimes it would go without stalling...Turned out to be a solenoid in the transmission (I believe it was called the torque converter lock solenoid or something like that)...$200 at the local Chev dealer fixed it... The service manager knew exactly what it was when we called and described the symptoms... You may want to change the transmission oil and filter first. It worked fine in my case.

Can you drive a moped on the highway?

NO! Mopeds generally are 50cc or less. Some states allow highway travel with a minimum of 150cc which is suicidal, unless it can maintain 70mph. Personally I would go no less than 250cc for highway riding, and more like 400cc for long distance touring with or without a passenger and with the ability to pass comfortably at highway speeds.

Why would cause your 1996 Eclipse GST Turbo to run hot after 12 miles of driving?

Check the operation of the cooling fans. However, if you are driving at highway speeds the cooling fan would not be needed, therefore it could be a defective thermostat or a clogged radiator, in which case a radiator shop could clean and refurbish it. If not driving at highway speeds, the check not only the fan, but the thermostatic switch controlling the fan and the fuse/circuit breaker for the fan system
