What kind of engine and transmission? Could be a faulty Idle Air Control if injected or a need for idle speed adjustment for a carburated engine. If the transmission has a loc…king torque converter, it may be stuck in locked mode instead of waiting for the proper high gear and speed conditions.
Answer . \nIf your vehicle is a rear-wheel drive, u-joints on either end of driveline may need replacing.
I have a 1994 Dodge colt the car starts and idles fine when it's put into drive or reverse the engine rpm drops low and will stall out This only occurs when the car is cold car is warm no problem?
1998 dodge ram van it starts fine but when you put it in drive or reverse and start to drive it stalls out now you had just replace the plugs and air filter what would be wrong with it?
Answer . \nMy 96 Van was doing the exact same thing. I had the van in to do some work prior to setting it up to tow a trailer when it was discovered the engine mounts and …transmission mounts were nearly tore apart. The engine was just resting on them. I never gave it any thought until a few days after they were replaced that it stopped stalling when I put it in gear. Hope it helps.
Buick Lesaber idles fine in drive but have to warm up or will die when you put into drive but ok in reverse also when push gas on take off it will bog down and almost stall outif you dont push gas why?
Answer . \nyou should check the fuel ingestion
Answer . If the engine is running smoothly befor this, then read on... This is a very common problem. You have a faulty TCC solenoid. I have replaced this sensor with ver…y simple tools (a 10 mm socket, a rachet, a gasket scraper, a T15 or T20 Torx driver, and replacement parts). It took me about 1 hour to complete having never done this job befor. The following link will tell you how to replace the sensor if you have a 125C tranny (3 speed). Althou the car pictured is a fiero, the same procedure applies.. http://www.kichline.com/chuck/fiero/TCC.htm. Good luck!!
1998 Polaris Explorer It runs fine but when you put it in reverse it acts like it is going to stall out and does not seem to engage Why is this happening?
This is a safety feature that polaris has on all their vehicles. It is to ensure that you will not achieve high speed in reverse as it is very dangerous. You must find the "re…verse override" button. While you are in reverse, hold down the button and you will be able to go full blast in reverse and engine will run normal in reverse.
Possibly, an air intake issue... Check your air system, mainly the hose/pipe coming from your airflow meter for cracks etc, when moving from park to drive, the jolt can be eno…ugh to largen a crack and cause air to be sucked through and bypass the flow meter, stalling the engine... this may be worsened if you have a faulty engine mount... Hope this helps!
Possible failed torque converter, it will be worth the money to have someone look at it who is good with transmissions.
cause it needs to be put in drive to go forward
Why does my '99 Oldsmobile Intrigue run great while driving foot on gas but sometimes stall due to rough idle when stopped at low idle or when I put it in reverse?
One common cause is a leaking fuel pressure regulator. When they leak, raw fuel gets into its vacuum line and causes a rich condition which can cause the car to stall, and als…o give a hard starting condition. - TechJK.
\nyes, get it rebuilt and buy new mufflers.\n. \nyou may want get a new intake, and probably up the gear ratio.\n. \nmaybe something around 4.10 should do it.\n. \nyour wel…come.\n. \nps - port and polish your heads just in case. better safe than sorry.

Why would my car idle fine in park but when you put it in drive or reverse it runs rough. It also runs rough when driving. Only is fine while in park.?
on newer cars with fuel injection if fuel pump sterts getting weak it could cause that happened to me
In Toyota Corolla
Why would a 87 Toyota corolla run fine in park and neutral but stall in drive and reverse and Also changed fuel filter and plugs and air filter and oil and filter and PVC?
First of all, does this happen ALL the time? Or only when you are fighting with your significant other? My ex used to work for a car dealership, and when ever she and her (for…mer) ex were fighting, she would "disable" his car with a little dirty mechanics trick: she would open the hood of the car, (and yes, it was a Toyota,) and would pull off the the distributor cap plug wires...the ones in the "first" and "last" posistion....she would then "switch" the posistion of these two wires, and re-connect them. End result? THE CAR WOULD START IN NEUTRAL, AND PARK, BUT WOULD "DIE" IN DRIVE OR REVERSE! Exactly as described in your "problem"! And since he was not mechanically inclined, he would take his car into (different) shops, and each one of them would "fix" his problem, at full cost, of course! So.......this might be a solution to your problem....hope it helps!
In Toyota Corolla
You probably have a bad torque converter, every time you engage a moving gear, your torque converter is supposed to "free spin" the transmission when the engine is at idle. It… doens't sound like it is doing its job.

i have a 97 Catera and it stalls in either drive or reverse. idles fine for 30 minutes but shuts off almost instantly. replaced CPS and tightened all grounds. No change. but s…ometimes it will drive beautifully... an answer would be great. next step for me is to fix the valve cover leaks and check all connections and hoses. any help?
