Does he still have the ability to steal speed.

If so what stops him or any flash from just stealing speed from any villain and spamming this cheap move? I don't understand the limitations of it, or why it's not used more often.

Barry does not.

Wally uses it quite frequently but in crossovers they tend to forget the power or weaken it depending on what the story calls for. It's the same reason Superman just doesn't beat everyone because he's so much more powerful -- it'd be boring.
