Answer to your question YES.Actualy a EGR valve doesn't reallystart working until you get up to higher speeds. At idel and slowerspeeds it's not active. So if something is wrong with it weatherit be EGR senser bad diaphragm orvacum hose the problem will showupat lower speeds and idle. It actually causes a vacum leak wichyou wouldn't notice at higher RPM's. It cuases your engine to run to lean making it run bad atlower RPM's. Hope this brings some light on this for ya.

Can you stall or is it just harder to stall a manual car while driving at speeds over 40?

It depends on the gearing of the car. If you are in the highest gear and 40mph in that gear is under the idle rpm of that car than you will stall.

How fast will the helicopters go in the future?

Not much faster. True helicopters are limited in airspeed. The helicopter blade can not fly faster than the speed of sound or it begins to flutter and even stall. The advancing blade has to go through the air faster than the retreating blade. The speed of the blade is the sum of the speed of the helicopter in forward flight plus(+) the rotational speed of the turning blades. If they can design a blade that will work at slow speeds and at speeds greater than Mach 1, then maybe they can build a faster helicopter.

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.

Why does my 88 Chevy Celebrity eurosport stall when it is in overdrive at low speeds?

You Are Putting To Much Load On Your Engine. When It Starts To Stall Drop It Into Regular Drive. Also You Need To Drive At Slow Speeds In Regular Drive. At Speeds Say Around 50 MPH You Can Use OD. By Allowing Your Car To Slug Around In Overdrive You Are Doing Your Transmission In Amoung Other Things. Your Car Was Not Designed To Run This Way. Stay Out Of Overdrive At Slow Speeds. This Should Solve Your Problem. If This Does`nt Have A Good Tune UP.

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.
