I edited the thread title to provide more information in the thread question than the word " Help!" provides

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.

A torque converter can still deliver power below its published stall speed, the stall speed has more to do with an optimal amount of power transfer, not that any power transfer happens.

When you open it up from a stop, the RPM at which the car really feels like it takes off at is essentially the stall speed, rather than the speed that it starts to move at.

One of the easiest ways to check "flash" stall is in 3rd. gear at low speeds, just push hard/abruptly on the peddle & watch your tach, you'll see by the feel of the car pulling & the tach will lay flat when you reach this point, You have 2 types of stall in a converter, brake stall (light load) & flash stall, converters are rated at flash stall (high load), I have a 2800 Jegs converter & depending on the road condition i can sometimes break the tires loose at 16-1800, other conditions it could be as high as 2200 before the tires break, but in 3rd. gear it'll flash too 28-3000.
