Question 2400 Stall Converter

This may be a dumb question.
When you use a 2300 - 2500 stall converter just doing regular stop and go driving does the engine need to reach that stall speed before the car will move ?

I understand how the converter works when you really want to launce the car closer to peak torque, but, am confused about the above.

Thanks

Joe

Actual stall speed is determined by engine touque output and not engine speed. It is a very shady area to determine actual converter lockup when not under full load.

This will not cause you to launch at 2500 rpm every time. If you accelerate slowly it will act similiar to the sensation of a manual gear car with a slipping clutch. This is favorable in a very light car with a radical engine, because it doesn't let the car "creep" forward when stopped at street lights. However, there is a drawback. At cruise speed, depending on your gear ratio, it may cause the convertor to slip causing bad fuel mileage and excess transmission heat. A good trans cooler is recommended.
