Engine stalling


97 base 5 spd lude
Hi there i just experienced an odd problem. I was driving back home from a competition, car was running perfect and all of the sudden as i'm driving my car started either hesitating stalling or a miss fire i dont know mechanical terms but it seems as after it started reaching 3 RPMS exactly it wouldn't go no further the engine revs and stalls over and over so i cant pass exactly 3 rpms. Even in neutral if i rev ill only go up to 3 then start hesitating as it wont go past it, the rpms don't drop but it just wont go past 3.Was a looong drive home since as long as i stayed under 3 rpms in any gear there was no problem. Sucks bad i was the guy on the fwy goin only 57 mph hahah you know those guys that get on everyones way.
The car starting hesitates for a second unless i give it a lil fuel pedal tap.
The engine seems normal very steady there's no idle problem so cant be air leak or loss.

im not a mechanic and i know lil about ludes I need help!!!
but too me i dkn why seems like a fuel related problem but then again if it is why wouldn't the engine idle rough and why only up to 3 RPMS
i did notice a belt is very worned and had some thread strips
and also i had a pending evap code
can it be the EGR valve clogged?
Carbon in the intake ports?
Thanks so much as any help is appriciated.
ohh has had new distributor cap and had done the whole tune up

Re: Engine stalling

im no mechanic but i would check any cel codes you u have up right now, remember them. reset your computer by taking off a battery terminal for 30 secs.. it might run good for a few miles just be ready to check when your cel comes on and see.
is the evap code the only code its throwing. when my codes pile up it puts mine in retard mode and then i have to reset my ecu

Re: Engine stalling

Thanks Cody for your advise i tried that at first but it didnt work
I guess its tough to advise this problem
but today i connected an obd2 scanner and i found a new code!!
I got P0441
and P1362
i think it may be the CKP and TDC sensors since i read they determine the fuel injection and ignition of each cylinder and also detects the engines speed
maybe thats why maybe fuel is getting cut off only letting me rev to 3000 rpms and not letting the engine go past it so it hessitates n stalls

is there a way to diagnose the ckp?
and what tools would i need?
and if you think it might be something other then the sensors what can it be!!
im forced to drive the speed limit lol since i have to undershift under 3 rpms in any gear lol.
has anyone had there CKP and TDC sensors go out?
if so what problem did you experience?
